.As readers of this column doubtlessly know, Barbara Gordon was bringing a book to the inhabitant of Wayne Manor when she realized that librarians could also become superhero crimefighters.
The question of the day, though, isn't about superheros (although I truly believe librarians are superheros), but is about that book she was bringing to Mr. Wayne.
How much did it cost to print the original
16001700 copies of that book in the first press run, according to the printer?
By the way, I'm looking for the cost in the original currency units. (You'll know what I mean when you find the price.)
I like this question as it links the Golden Age of Comic Books to American history in an interesting and unusual way.
(Note: Sorry about that... my mistake in transcribing. The first printing was 1700 copies, NOT 1600!)
