A Rare Book
A collector of
rare books ran into an acquaintance
who told him he had just thrown away
an old Bible that he found in a
dusty, old box. He happened to
mention that Guten-somebody-or-other
had printed it.
"Not Gutenberg?" Gasped the collector.
"Yes, that was it!""You idiot! You've thrown away one of the first books ever printed. A copy recently sold at an auction for half a million dollars!"
"Oh, I don't think this book would have been worth anything close to that much," replied the man. "It was scribbled all over in the margins by some guy named Martin Luther."
