.
Last month AbeBooks sold three historic bibles with a combined age of 1,296 years and a combined value of more than $66,000. The most expensive sale was a Latin bible from 1491 for $26,200. It?s a so-called ?Poor Man?s bible? printed by Johannes Froben in Basel. The nickname comes from its smaller size as bibles were printed in a large format with no expense sparred prior to Froben's edition.

Wow! this is a nice looking book. It might actually encourage me to read the Bible...
