February’s Top 10 Expensive Sales: DNA Discovery to Japanese Paper


February’s top sale was a rare set of the only 18th-century French translation of Shakespeare, which went for $16,816. It’s a 20-volume set, so works out to about $840 per volume.

Other items of note include an autographed copy of a book detailing the discovery of DNA, and a 1952 book about handmade Japanese paper, including specimens from the eighth and ninth centuries.
