Henry V

Title

Henry V

Description

In 1892, noted antiquarian book seller Bernard Quaritch sold this small book for 63 pounds--more than £40,000 today. Clearly, this was considered an important book: the wealthy assigned this book a value representative of its literary status. However, the opposite also took place: its monetary value also contributes to its importance. This is clearly shown by the inclusion of the clipping from the catalog, with notes, in the binding of the book itself--opposing the last page of the quarto, in fact.
