    • Me too! I had a wealthy friend once who was thinking about buying one of them (yes, there are a few for sale to collectors.)

      I think it was fairly reasonable, as far as bizarre objets d’art go, ‘only’ $25k or so… considering she was not really that literary and it wasn’t something she could put on display for others to envy, I think she bought an Hermes bag instead…
