What Is the Most Valuable Book Ever Printed?

In 1455, a German named Johann Gutenberg became the first person to print a book on a printing press with movable letters.

He printed 200 copies of the Bible. Of these, only 21 complete copies exist today.

And one of them was sold at auction in 1978 for $2,400,000, making it the most expensive book ever printed!
