ON THE MOST EXPENSIVE NUMISMATIC BOOKS

Regarding last week's discussion of the most expensive
works of numismatic literatures, Douglas Saville writes:
"When I was at Spinks, in October 2005, we purchased the
most expensive numismatic book at auction in Paris: Johann
Huttich’s Imperatorum romanorum (Strasbourg, 1526) in a
most superb French mid-16th century binding done especially
for Jean Grolier. The price was Euro 102,935, or around
£74,000 or now $145,000."

[Larry Mitchell pointed out that we did discuss this
particular book in November 2005.  Below is a link to
the original article.  Thanks also to Howard Cohen who
writes: "I enjoyed your topic  on 'World's Most Valuable
Books'. I came across an article in "Coin World" dated
January 9th, 2006. The heading reads 'Book sells for record
price'."  The article was about the Spink purchase of the
Huttich 'Imperatorum romanorum' book.  -Editor]
