Let’s start the list off with the book written by J.K. Rowling. You probably know her as the author of Harry Potter. Well, this one was a part of the legendary series too. In fact, it was mentioned in the last book.

After Dumbledore’s passing, Hermione Granger was given the book in which she later found the symbol of Deathly Hallows.

There are only seven copies of The Tales of Beedle and Bard. All of them were handwritten and illustrated by the author herself. Thus, it should come as no surprise how precious the book can be.

$3.98 million. That is precisely how precious it is. In December of 2007, Sotheby’s expected it to sell for $77,000 only. Little did everybody know, someone was willing to pay for more. Today, it is worth $4.5 million.
