Found a first edition of this book for sale at USD$165,000. Should this be integrated into the article in a section detailing its worth today? Sale page is http://www.abaa.org/books/273263417.html. abaa.org is a reliable and reputable source for rare book sales. Canine virtuoso (talk) 03:35, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
Interesting find. The German edition hence, seems to have an even higher value. Also if you look up for single pages, which are frequently sold on eBay, the German ones tend to have a higher price than those of the Latin version. The reason for this might be, that the way they wrote German back in those days is also of historic value and scientific interest, while Latin is always Latin and few people can read it today fluently. --El bes (talk) 01:27, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
It seems to be the first copy/paste of the History. --Tangopaso (talk) 19:13, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
It was not an uncommon practice, as the engravings were labourous to produce. BTW, one image in the chronicles is used 17 times to show different persons! --Episcophagus (talk) 07:09, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Woodcuts, please! This is covered in the text: the total 1809 illustrations used about 645 actual different images. Johnbod (talk) 11:55, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
Of corse, woodcuts . English is not ny first language and sometimes... well... I get the wrong word. --Episcophagus (talk) 19:48, 16 October 2012 (UTC)
