NONFIC: The Lost Gutenberg, the Astounding Story of One Book’s Five-Hundred Year Odyssey, by Margaret Leslie Davis

June: NonFiction Pick

Following the path of one book, one of the 48 remaining original copies of the Bible printed by Guttenberg, one learns about much more than just that story.  The stories about the book business, the agents, the ups and downs of fortune, the experience of a woman investor in a man’s world. The conclusion is exciting, and has a bearing on the way the market treats great works of art these days.
