  • I brought you one of the most positive and uplifting

  • books I've ever brought you.

  • OK.

  • "The Dance of Death."

  • It's a book from 1547.

  • It is really cool.

  • This is basically a bunch of pictures

  • of death coming to call.

  • Back in the 1500s, if you lived to like 50 years old,

  • you're ancient.

  • [laughs]

  • I came into the pawn shop again

  • to see Rick to sell my copy of the famous "The Dance

  • of Death."

  • It's magnificent in the way that the images and the text

  • sit on the printed page.

  • I mean, it's a book from 1547.

  • For a book as beautiful as this, I

  • think collectors from all walks of life

  • are going to be interested.

  • Ah, this is pretty amazing.

  • It's all woodblock prints, right?

  • Yeah.

  • It's illustrated by a wood blocks.

  • It's actually done by Hans Holbein.

  • He was one of the most famous artists of the Renaissance.

  • He was the court painter to Henry VIII.

  • It's a very interesting work.

  • Kind of grew out of the Black Plague from the 14th century.

  • How much do you want?

  • Well, for "The Dance of Death" I

  • don't want to kill you over the price,

  • but I'm looking for $10,000 for it.

  • $10,000.

  • You know what I do when you come in.

  • I'm going to call up Rebecca and have her come down.

  • Oh, yeah. Of course.

  • Let me get her down here and see what she has to say.

  • Yeah.

  • Have her look at it. - OK.

  • All right. Be right back.

  • Thank you so much.

  • I'm really excited that Rick is going to show Rebecca.

  • She's always reminding me about condition.

  • And this time I brought her a beautiful book

  • in beautiful condition.

  • And she's going to be really excited to see it.

  • I hate to do this, but something morbid awaits you.

  • [laughs]

  • Ah, yes.

  • That is the book I told you about.

  • "The Dance of Death."

  • Pretty neat, huh?

  • It's amazing.

  • It's beautiful.

  • And, Rick, this is officially my favorite book

  • that you've had me look at.

  • It's very, very interesting.

  • And I know a little bit about it.

  • Well, this comes out of the 14th century in particular.

  • Really bad century for humanity, at least for Europe.

  • I mean, not only the Black Death, but famine.

  • And, as a result, you get this culture that starts looking

  • at their mortality differently.

  • Death is everywhere.

  • We're not getting away from it.

  • But on the other hand, while we're alive,

  • we still need some amusement.

  • We need to enjoy ourselves.

  • And "The Dance of Death" kind of rides that line.

  • Some of these scenes are kind of funny, too.

  • Look, Rick, I found you.

  • [laughs]

  • Look.

  • See the merchant who is all upset

  • that death's taking his money? - Yes.

  • Yes. That would upset me.

  • [laughs]

  • I love this book.

  • It is one of the most important works in the history

  • of book illustration.

  • The images in here are timeless.

  • They're beautiful.

  • And they speak to the human condition.

  • I have a few questions.

  • It's been rebound.

  • Yeah.

  • But, obviously, it's rebound very well.

  • It is.

  • And the original cover would have probably

  • been wasted anyway, right? - Yes.

  • Ideally, you would love to have it in a contemporary binding.

  • But whoever bound it, they spent money on the binding

  • and I wouldn't consider that a deal breaker.

  • - OK. - OK?

  • So what do you think it's worth?

  • OK.

  • The early 16th century, there are a number of editions.

  • So this isn't technically the first edition.

  • That said, today, these are really hard to come by.

  • Yeah.

  • I think that--

  • I think you could get up to 16,000 for this.

  • Cool.

  • You could maybe even get more, honestly.

  • OK.

  • Impressive price.

  • I like that.

  • I get visitation rights?

  • You have visitation rights.

  • OK.

  • If I buy it.

  • OK.

  • [laughs]

  • I really hope Rick buys this.

  • And, honestly, I don't care if it's at a good price.

  • He should just buy it.

  • And then I'll have to figure out some way to get it from him.

  • So would you take $9,000 for it?

  • Look, I'm not a person to haggle, really.

  • We do a lot of deals.

  • But I love this book.

  • This is really one of the finest series

  • of Renaissance illustrations.

  • Let's just go down the middle.

  • To 92?

  • Don't bury me.

  • [laughs]

  • 95 down the middle.

  • It's a fair price.

  • If Rebecca is that enthusiastic about this book,

  • I can guarantee you're going to find people who are even

  • more enthusiastic about it.

  • I have bought a lot of books off you

  • and I have made money on every one.

  • So you got a deal, bud. - Done.

  • - OK. - $9,500 for the book.

  • It's really close to what I asked for.

  • I'm going to take this $9,500 and

  • instead of focusing on death, I'm

  • going to be celebrating life.

I brought you one of the most positive and uplifting
