500 year old book for sale

If you have a spare NZ$42,000 (US$35,000) lying around, maybe you'd like to buy a 500 year old book, the German language edition of the Nuremberg Chronicle, printed by Anton Koberger and published in 1493.
It's for sale at a rare book store in Utah and is considered one of the earliest and most lavishly illustrated works of the 15th century. Pretty amazing!
