...For Book collectors, some very expensive Books !
AbeBooks' Top 10 Most Expensive Sales in July 2011
Picasso de 1916 à 1961 by Jean Cocteau
Picasso de 1916 à 1961
by Jean Cocteau
Last month's most expensive sales on AbeBooks were eye-catching, cosmopolitan and substantial. A rare limited edition book featuring the artwork of Pablo Picasso and the poetry of Jean Cocteau catches the eye, as does a lush collection of German-Swiss painter Paul Klee's work with 850 color plates. The cosmopolitan feel comes from a couple of rare items that originated from Paris – an early incarnation of a classic Victor Hugo novel and an early decorated map of the city. One of the substantial purchases on our list was a 57-volume set of leather-bound science fiction novels published by Easton Press.
I also caught my attention to these novels that have very interesting themes !
The Testament - John Grisham
The Runaway Jury - John Grisham
I admire anybody who would read and learn from these Novels of Gris[grey]-Ham !
