APPRAISER: It is for young adolescents, called Metamorphosis, published in Hanover, Pennsylvania, in 1814. When you fold this open, the transformation happens. Here you have instead of Adam, you have Eve. And then she actually turns into something else. Those books are extremely rare because they're so fragile. We are probably looking at $3,000 to $4,000 for this.
GUEST: Wow. My goodness.
