20 The Great Chalice of Antioch Eisen, Gustavus A.
NY Fahim Kouchakji 1933 Hard Cover Mint Glassine VG Quatro 
Fascinating book in MINT CONDITION and custom-cut, clear Acetate / Glassine DJ in MINT. This handsome chalice is thought by some to be the 'Holy Grail,' and by some to have engraved thereupon the first images of Jesus and His twelve apostles. We make no such claim, except to say this is one remarkable chalice and this book describing it is superb. We also have the gigantic, leather-bound 2 volume set of the much-expanded version (at US$2,500 for the Set).
