How Many Of These Most Expensive Books In The World You Want In Your Bookshelf


Do you ever wish to have the most expensive books in the world in your bookshelf?

Ever thought about how Books do feel like when on a Sunday morning or at night, you sit there, introspecting, holding that bundle of sober creamy sheets in your hands?

A lot of thoughts, rhetorical questions, poems, and quotes, might have crossed your head.

The query that crossed our heads though was,

What are some of the most expensive books in the world?

And the answer was found after thorough research, which is, as follows:

  1. The Codex Leicester, Leonardo da Vinci — $30.8 million

  2. The Gospels of Henry the Lion, Order of Saint Benedict — $11.7 million

  3. Birds of America, James Audubon — $11.5 million

  4. The Canterbury Tales, Geoffrey Chaucer — $7.5 million

  5. First Folio, William Shakespeare — $6 million

  6. The Gutenberg Bible — $4.9 million

  7. Treatise on Fruit Trees, by Henri Louis Duhamel — $4.5 million

    See Also

  8. Geographia Cosmographia, Claudius Ptolemy — $4 million

  9. The Tales of Beedle the Bard, J.K. Rowling — $3.98 million

  10. The First Book of Urizen, William Blake — $2.5 million

Woah! Who would have thought that there can be an even more expensive book than Bible? And who would have known, that Bible, even in the era of postmodernism, is still one of the most costly books in the world!

Which of these books, other than Bible (obviously), you want to own?

We certainly wish to have the Chaucer’s, The Canterbury Tales.
