Missed Collection

General story by T-Ralph

Henry Marks, a collector of rare books ran into an acquaintance, Arnold, 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 Henry.

'Yes, that was it,' remembered Arnold.

'You idiot' Henry exploded, 'You've thrown away one of the first books ever printed. A copy recently sold at auction for half a million dollars.'

'Oh, I don't think this book would have been worth anything close to that much,' replied Arnold. 'It was scribbled all over in the margins by some guy named Martin Luther.'
