The crown jewel of Powell’s rare books in Oregon

13 Mar

The crown jewel of the Rare Book Room is “History of the Expedition under the Command of Captains Lewis and Clark, Vol. 1.”

“We just call them the journals, the Lewis and Clark journals,” used book buyer Kirsten Berg said. “This is the most expensive book, or set of books, that we own, and we bought it because it’s so closely tied with Oregon history.”

It is valued at $350,000.
