In case anyone hasn’t noticed this yet, a copy of the Magna Carta from 1297 is being auctioned by Sotheby’s in December.
I emailed my history professor to tell him, and his response was this:
I had not seen that, so thanks for sending it. I was going to offer some snarky comment about some knucklehead getting a hold of it, but Perot having already owned it kind of blows that up. Someone with more money than sense will no doubt get it and make trading cards out of pieces of it or something.
That pretty much sums it up.
And yes, he really said “snarky”. Love it.
