De Bello Judaica

De Bello Judaica

The most expensive thing I could find in the rare books room at Powell’s Books (the Burnside location): a copy of Josephus’ De Bello Judaica from Verona, dating to 1480. Pretty much one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.

The second most expensive book I saw was a signed first edition copy of Stephen King’s “The Stand,” oddly enough. $8,000 less than this one, though.
