The Rarest Books We Still Have
"Printed by Johann Gutenberg in Mainz, c.1455, the first book printed from movable types in the western world. Forty-eight copies survive; only thirty-one are perfect. A single leaf sells for £50,000; a complete version would be worth tens of millions of pounds." The Telegraph (UK) 01/21/13
