600- year- old book discovered

A 600- year-old book was found in Sandy, UT at an antiques fundraiser on Saturday.

Book dealer Ken Sanders examined what was a very antique book for $2 dollars , but had not idea the history behind it.

KPLC reports,"A gentleman walked in and said I've got a really important book here and I'm sitting there rolling my eyes and think, 'yeah, sure you do,'" Sanders said. "Then he opens it up and it's a Nuremberg Chronicles from 1494."

Sanders first guess was that this book is well over 100,000 dollars.

The owner of the book said he does not plan to go for top dollar, and just wants to make it available for the public to see, reports KPLC
