What's the Most Expensive Book in the World?

"These days with printing and digital technologies being. What they are books can be very affordable. But when you get into collector territory prices can be astounding. Today's question is what is the most expensive book in the World Abraham Stuff? It's me person Sagar. Sometimes I like to imagine that long after I'm dead. A wealthy philanthropist is going to buy my diary for millions of dollars in lend it to museums across the planet. Then everyone would finally know the answer to today's question. What is the most expensive book in the world? Something by William Shakespeare the Neck Renamo con twilight new moon. Well it all depends on if the book is printed or if it's handwritten if we're talking books that have had multiple copies printed and the answer is the Bay Psalm. Book which sold for more than fourteen million dollars in November of two thousand thirteen it was originally printed by Puritans in Cambridge Massachusetts in sixteen forty seeking religious freedom. These settlers wanted their own translation of the Old Testament. Today there are only eleven copies remaining and it is considered the first book printed in America but if we include one of a kind handwritten texts than the Bay Psalm. Book isn't even worth half the value of the most expensive book ever sold. That title goes to Leonardo DAVINCI'S CODEX Leicester which sold for thirty point. Eight million dollars in nineteen ninety four to a little known computer programmer by the name of Bill Gates. Adjust that amount for inflation and today the Codex is almost worth fifty million dollars. In fact. That's forty nine million. Five Hundred Twenty eight thousand five hundred. Sixty one dollars and forty cents. If you WANNA be technical it's an unbound seventy two page notebook filled with Davinci's drawings and thoughts mainly about how to move water yet. The most expensive book in the world is basically a plumbing manual more on that in a minute. A lot of DAVINCI's writing was lost to history. Almost half of it. In fact so the Codex. Leicester is mainly important because it's a single collection of his focused ideas. The Codex is written like many of Davinci's works in something called mirror hand. All the letters are reversed and it's written from right to left so the only way you can read it when it's held up to a mirror and you probably need a fluency in antiquated Italian as well. So it's a book about water that's written backwards to be fair. That's oversimplifying things a bit. It's primarily about how astronomy and geology relate to water. Considering the functionality of tides eddies and dams really Davinci was trying to figure out how to harness the power of moving water he demonstrates how pressure increases with theft in a fluid and the Codex examines configurations of siphons and differently shaped pipes. He's particularly interested in the fluid mechanics of how water moves around obstacles. This manuscript was first purchased in seventeen. Seventeen by a guy named Thomas Coke who later became the earl of Leicester Hence the title Codex Leicester But in one thousand nine hundred eighty an art collector named Armand Hammer bought it changing. Its name to the more bad ass Codex Hammer. This only lasted fourteen years. Though intil gates bought it and changed back then he made it into a screensaver for windows. Ninety five actually gate seems genuinely inspired by Davinci's example of pushing themselves to find more knowledge. He's even loaned the book to a number of museums years so it be viewed and studied by the public. So that's the most expensive book

"Christopher Marlowe just a fortnight. After Marlo Death William Shakespeare you're published the first of his works that listed him as author Venus and Adonis did marlow fake his own death and then continued. Continue to publish under the name. William Shakespeare the timeline does add up and marlow was well enough acquainted with the actor William of Stratford Stratford in the London theater scene. He could have plausibly convinced William to give up his name. Perhaps for a cut of the Shakespeare plays prophets its supporters of this idea have turned to the Shakespeare plays themselves for further evidence. Shakespeare had nothing less than an obsession with resurrection direction throughout his thirty seven plays. Eighteen characters are wrongly presumed dead. Marlo may have been leaving US clues news to his own fate while his exact burial site is unknown. The Commemorative Plaque for Marlo in Westminster Abbey may have left left another clue right under our noses before his year of death. Fifteen ninety three a question. Mark is engraved in the stone but in order to believe that Christopher Marlowe is William Shakespeare you must believe to other sub theories the first being that Marlo inlands most prominent playwright at the time was also a royal spy. That's something that was never insinuated during Marles lifetime time well there are however strong unexplained ties between Marlow an Queen Elizabeth's Royal Privy Council. These ties. Make this for sub theory unreasonable But the second sub theory that Marlo faked his own death to save himself from execution for atheism is harder to believe. This is less convincing primarily. Because Marlowe was London's most popular playwright there are no recorded sightings of marlow after his death and and no evidence of contemporary speculation that his burial was a hoax. It's unlikely that such a popular figure could just go on living without attracting acting even a whisper of gossip however it is compelling that the name William Shakespeare first appeared in published work a fortnight after Marco's Lowe's death compelling is about the highest honor. You could give this theory. There's no shortage of circumstantial evidence. But no smoking. Gun to convinces. It says that Marlo is the true Shakespeare. We're all we give this conspiracy Three out of ten and there are simply not enough hard facts that link Marlo to Shakespeare's works. Our next theory involves more facts and as hard as it is to believe more drama this. This theory argues that Edward Devere seventeenth. Earl of Oxford used William Shakespeare as his pen name as of two thousand nineteen. Devere is one of the most popular candidates for the title of William Shakespeare Amongst conspiracy theorists those that back devere as the true Shakespeare. Call themselves ox forty.

"Marlowe was indeed a catholic trader. But they're interference makes perfect sense if Marlowe was only pretending to be Catholic as part of an espionage mission and the Privy Council's interference and Marlins life didn't air in fifteen ninety two. He was arrested for counterfeiting and the charges were dropped again. Thanks the council. Historians believe that this counterfeit charge was also part of an espionage mission during his lifetime. These suspicions weren't weren't public knowledge instead. Marlow was famous for something different. He was England's most beloved. Playwright Marlowe hello. wrote such works as Dr Faustus the Jew of Malta and Edward the second he was best known for popularizing the blank verse style of writing. Something that William Shakespeare also became famous for using and as we discussed last week. Marlow is widely recognized as has William Shakespeare's biggest influence in fact some of William Shakespeare's early plays appear to be near copies of Marlins works from structure to subject matter according to historian John Lewis in seven of his plays. Shakespeare is clearly in probably probably consciously copying marlow and in eleven other plays. There are faint traces and suggestions of marlins influence.

"We're hearing them we're seeing them. We're reading them at every turn, our average vocabulary as adults now as an English speaker as English speakers is about twenty thousand words, and we may know passively up to forty thousand and as I said the estimate for Shakespeare in fifteen eighty five with no evidence of his education, seemingly board into an illiterate family seemingly, having an illiterate family was thirty thousand words, so more than our average American or English speaker now who's bartered with words on a daily basis. So that's, that's that comparatively just based on a quick, Google search. So as I said, what do we know about Shakespeare? We know legisla he was a writer, but we only we only have six evidence of things that he ever wrote their his signatures on legal documents. And all. All these prodigious. If such a prodigious writer, no letters exist. No signed manuscripts exist, the references to the specific things that you wouldn't know about are in the place. But we don't have any evidence that he knew about them through other various, or direct means I will say, also what we know factually about the William Shakespeare of legal documents is that he was a successful business man. We know he was an actor in plays as referenced by publish things. And we know that he had a lot of he was legit. He acted a lot in seeking to establish things from a business standpoint. You never sued about anything written, which copyright law may not have been. Then what it is. Now. I think that's something that has changed over time. We know he had a will in his will he makes no reference to any, any of his writings, they're not referenced in the wheel at all, like any of the rights for the writings, any of my unpublished writings, any of my letters. He leaves noth- no reference in his will to anything regarding his writing. So that's what we've got a fishery, about William Shakespeare. There was a statue of Shakespeare, awash Shakespeare, or I should say, like a plaque or like a relief like a sculpture built in Stratford upon a von eat bright. Now you can see it. It's shows William Shakespeare with a pen in his hand, people who are proponents of what they call the anti Stratford theory, the theory, ultimately, that William Shakespeare from Stratford-upon-Avon in England couldn't have written all these works. Sh have some evidence, including paintings that show that, that originally might have shown Shakespeare with a bag either of grain or of wool because he was into real estate. And he was into trades of the kind of things that were happening in Stratford. So they're our Gatien is that at some point, when Shakespeare, the writer became well known the original relief of Shakespeare, or the original sculpture was changed from showing him with the bag to showing him with a pen, so that's what we know is happening the proponents of this theory. They suggest alternately that the references in the works are ones that he would not have known, and they also will put forward reasons why somebody might have listed William Shakespeare as an alias, or even worked with the businessman Shakespeare, who knows a successful businessman to essentially pay him to put his name on these works, and the reasons are actually pretty persuasive. If you want to believe that a person of higher education, for example, would have written these works, then one of the reasons you want to believe that a person of higher education would have written these works, but not wanted their name on them is a lot of them are a little bit seditious. They infect people in of the time were arrested or in charge because they put on a Richard, the third, I believe, and we're jailed for it, because it is seemingly anti monarchy, some of the stuff that's going on in England at this time with regard to the monarchy is reestablishing, it, making it, so that it strong and powerful again. And a lot of these works. They don't they don't make the monarchy. Look good. And so there would be a reason for person of high class, not to want to associate their name with certain of these things, contemporaries of the writer William Shakespeare, Christopher Marlowe, for example, it's believed that Marlowe even faked his own death to avoid prosecution for different one..

"But Henry, the fifth such a great movie. I'm big fan of Kenneth Branagh. But that, that also goes back at least thirty years, what, what is this is this any good? You know, I have to say this has been kind of soft spring in that. I haven't really had a lot to send people to, you know, when people go what good and, and I'm always scrambling to send them to something. And it I haven't had a lot, and this is one that I really can't send people to. I found it to be just utterly. Utterly charming. It's about Shakespeare in his later days, it's Shakespeare after his theater burns at the globe theatre burned to the ground and he's returning home to his wife and his two daughters. And he's been away for a long time. Alienated, and they don't know each other very well. And it's him sort of contemplating mortality and what is he now? He's not William Shakespeare, and, you know, reconnecting with this family Judi Dench plays. And I mean, you know, technically she's probably a little too old for that part. I think it works beautifully just because the two of them together are such just such a light and it's written by this guy named Ben Elton who has a series on British television called upstart crow, which is one of my favorite shows about his sitcom about Shakespeare. It's very JP and Larquie, and lots of acronyms accuser. This doesn't have that kind of an acronym crazy, wacky humor. But it has some humor to it. That is really quite sublime. And I thought it was beautiful. Just love it. Since the still in theaters. So you know, I never heard of it at all. Told me about it, I've never How really. about one movie? Yes. And did you see biggest little farm the documentary? I did. I did. Did you like it charmer? I did. I loved it.

Kenneth Branagh talks 'All Is True'

"Everybody. I'm Peter Travers this popcorn where we tell. You. What's happening at the movies? And we have a movie now called all is true. It is the story of William Shakespeare in his later years. It stars my friend here Kenneth Branagh who also directed it. And did God knows what else, you know? Can I think it's kind of amazing? We were talking a little bit before about when I first encountered you which was you playing a Henry the fifth onscreen, which he directed as well as started Oscar nominations for both things. This was a Henry who was just filled with youth and vigor and was going to take on the world and everything and it was. This fresh vigorous approach to what Shakespeare is. And now, you're playing Shakespeare himself in his later years has that make you feel on usual. Unusual very privileged. Because the in a way, you know, Henry the fifth was a it was an amazing opportunity to have as a young actor, and a sort of virgin filmmaker and really was any possible because there were lots of other equally sorts of adventurous maverick figures in terms of the produces and an all sorts of other people who were taking a chance on me. I remember talking to the late. Great psalm. Go when junior when we were releasing that film in America saying cannot, please please, please. I I know I'm I'm I'm twenty I'm nobody another, but complete can I make two requests on the post police. Could you include two names, one is Judi Dench who I promise you people will know about sued they will know about and the other one pleases William Shakespeare, without whom none of us would be here. Why credit the writer well, just different additional dialogue anyway. But it was he was just too concerned about what was going. To get people into the side. No problem listening to a smart, man. He news who knew his market. But I suppose the send if things I keep sort of saying the same thank yous to people like Judy Dench shoop stuck with me through a journey through shakes. Things have you done with her? I mean we worked about together by seven times. And she's directed me. A couple of times and I've directed her. I've always learned from her and a couple of years ago, we did Shakespeare's play the winter's tale, which was really a prelude to making this film. All is true because she played Pauline a- a woman who speaks truth to power, and she puts my character in that play on a man who makes stupid mistake and loses a child as a result. She puts into the test puts into the sold, and that sort of ten ship became a starting point for Ben Elton thinking about how might Anne Hathaway and William Shakespeare's relation be after twenty years of him being away as the most famous of the agent and coming back to face the family. That's the the whole crux of the story. He's got this wife who he basically has neglected. Fully and two daughters and a dead son memories dealing with. But I always here we know nothing about what really happened in terms of what was going on and Shakespeare's life. So how does this come about that you get to play him at in sixteen thirteen when he's basically retired after the old gulp Peter burns down. He's going on. Well, belts looked at the existing facts factual as we knew them that appear in the Public Record Office. And so you'll find that on on a day in June of sixteen fourteen Joan lane stood up in the church. Holy trinity church in Stratford, and he called Shakespeare's daughter a whore. And he said she had gonna RIA and that she was sleeping with the a man who was not her husband. This is in public record quite clear. Everybody knew about it created a sensation because Shakespeare was returning celebrity and in the case of of someone so creatively prolific to come back to a tiny town. And a long way from London, and and after thirty seven plays in a great success workout, what to do even let alone what to say to a wife and daughters, who as you say been neglected, and who have if you think of in terms of the plays that he wrote we're to have plenty to say about what he might or might not have done or said in his terms. He's gonna he's gonna come to terms with how that sits, you know, the the this idea of what it's like for genius to deal with old and rely was also in the in the core of what we were trying to look at Ben Elton who did this works on in a very humorous way. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yeah. But that's it. He's coming up and people are saying who the hell are you, you know. And I think what again one of the fascinating about Shakespeare's. How elusive he is. You know, there are probably about twenty five about him in the public record of his places. He was things that happened during the course of his life, but many people find it hard to join the. The idea of the fellow we present who may not have gone to drama school comes from a relatively lower class and REO in small country town and goes off into the world and can write plays about Rome and Egypt. And and it's Lee, and and and politics and religion and do so without having had the classical education without being as whether classical idea of genius, lured by remand bad and dangerous to know living glamorous life of public scandal. That sound great. I'd buy some of that. But Shakespeare seems to go pups, you know, exemplify what flow BAC, hold when he described the autistic life and said, you need to be boys watering, your private life and revolutionary in your creative life, and you might argue that about Shakespeare, but but that that that's sort of contradiction tension between the ordinary man and the man capable of extrordinary creative output to me you so touching so point. So Shakespeare because he he often in his own. Own place. He pulls the rug from under the feet of grandiloquent people saying, you know, what? In the end, you're all going to need company. You're going to need help at the end of your life. You're all going to require a you're all you need a support that comes from very simple contact with human beings. It isn't all about being some grand Queen or king. Even if he writes, very well about them his genius. I think he's writing about the nitty gritty in love, isn't it? Yeah. It's kind of amazing that in terms of film television. Whatever we don't really get that much of him. We really don't. So you I'm watching this. And I'm thinking, okay. Here's the he's coming home that heroes coming on, and nobody really wants them. Yes. Everybody's white says really, you know. And also that they were illiterate, basically, women just weren't taught obsoleted. So so a lot Benneton I think to give a modern voice in the film to women who. Had not been listened to. And it didn't matter to them that father, even then was lauded as the as the poet of the age, his, you know, clear and present responsibility as a parent, and as a husband with something that they they challenge, and and they challenge indeed as most families experience, even with the most high-achieving mother or father out there in the world being spectacular comeback to your own, you know, kitchen table, and you're just a member of that family and people are are unimpressed in the tension. That accrues is important one of the things I admire about Shakespeare is that he does come back to stop. But he does he does. He does fess up. You know, he he they stay married, and we investigate and explore the idea of what what it meant when this is true in in Shakespeare's will he left his wife? His second best bed and many people. Regard this great slight or a snob or in front. We take a different view that might have that might actually be a layer of meaning in that that suggest Papp's. It's a it's more than a friendly.

Kenneth Branagh Talks Shakespeare

"Kenneth Branagh is one of the all time greatest Shakespearean actors ranking alongside Laurence Olivier and John Gielgud. And he's the reigning keeper of the flame having staged and starred in dozens of Shakespeare's productions and brought six of Shakespeare's greatest works to the big screen. Indeed Brana would be the first to admit that he owes his career to the man known as the Bard of Avon. And now he says he wanted to express his thanks with a new film about the last three years of Shakespeare's life, titled all is true. He directed produced and starred in the film that opens in theaters may tenth just a few days after Shakespeare's four hundred fifty fifth birthday and on today's podcast, sir. Kenneth Branagh opens up about his lifelong fascination with this literary genius. And what? It was like to step into the shoes of his hero.

I do BA weep too many simple goals, namely to be has things Buckingham and tell them. Tis the Queen and her allies that stirred the king against the Duke. My brother. Now, they believe it. And with all wet me to be revenged on rivers Dorset, gray. But then I saw I. And with a piece of scripture, tell them that God bids us do good for evil. Then Thus I closed. My naked villainy with odd old end stolen out of holy writ and seen a Saint when most I play the devil. And that right. There is a. Few lines from the play Richard the third written by. Good old William Shakespeare. The bard. And. Clearly. Richard the third is made out in this play to be an evil like one hundred percent evil political maneuver, that's what he's made out to be sort of the ultimate archetype of the Machiavellian Machiavellian. Leader. And there's people that say, and it's it's actually it certainly seems that Shakespeare intentionally wrote him that way. And there's a bunch of things I guess at some point. We'll go over the the whole play of Richard the third, but. Let's take a look at the wines that because because Machiavellian what we what we think of it when we hear it. Now is we think that it means someone that is just completely devious and completely dishonest and completely deceitful in their quest for power. Yeah. Right. That's what people think of when they think of Machiavellian and. Definitely I think Richard the third is made to be and was written to be sort of the the quintessential Machiavellian character. Let's look at these lines a little bit. Because as I said when we did Henry the fifth on podcast number fifteen. You're not gonna know exactly what Shakespeare is talking about. Because he's writing in an almost in another language is not quite you can still understand it doesn't take much, but there's some things going on in there. So it starts off. I do the wrong and I begin to brawl. So was he saying there, I am the one that is doing something that is wrong? I'm the one that's starting the fights. That's what's going on here. I'm starting to fights. And then he says the secret mischief that I said a broach I lay unto the grievous charge of others. So these bad behaviors that he's undertaking. That he's secretly undertaking. He is blaming them on other people. He then goes on to say clearance, whom I indeed have cast in darkness, and you wouldn't quite understand this. But unless you read it, but his brother clearance, he put his brother Clarence into prison. And then he says, I do BA weep too many simple goals. So he in front of other people he cries and bemoans that oh poor clearance. But he thinks those people are fools, namely, derby, Astings and Buckingham, which is what he says the next line. And and then he says that he tells those same people he tells those people that it's the Queen and her allies and tell them TIs the Queen and her allies, he's he saying like look this isn't about me. It's about the Queen. She's the one that's doing all this. She's the one that stir the king against the Duke my brother, so it's not it's not my fault. It's the Queen. And then he says now, they believe it. And with all wet me. Meaning they believe it. And then they're egging him on like you need. You can't let that stay imagine. That twist drives they're like, you're setting this up. But then you've got these people actually egging you to take vengeance on the situation. Which is what they're asking him onto do back to the book to be revenged on rivers Dorsett, gray. But then then here's where here's what it takes a little a little switch.
