Talk about expensive! People looking to get their hands on this rare book will need to cough up an estimated $2-3 million.
The reason for the high price? It's a true first edition of Lewis Carroll's "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland," published in 1865.
"He noticed that the illustrations were coming out uneven. Some were printed a little lighter, darker in other areas, and he rejected the entire production. So because of that, they became excessively rare," said Francis Wahlgren, Christie's international director of science and books.
