1,28 Mio € – Highest ever Auction Result for a Printed Book at a German Auction
At an auction sale of Reiss & Sohn in 2017 the very first printing of Martin Luther’s “95 Theses”, published in 1517 and marking the beginning of the protestant reform was called up at an estimated price of 150,000 €. After a fierce bidding contest between room and telephones this “milestone-of-printing” went to a proud buyer who participated by telephone and realized a total of 1,28 Mio €, a record price in the history of German book auction sales.
We are happy to receive consignment offers for our autumn sales 2021. Please direct all offers in written form or give us a call.
