RCP's Linneaus Makes £180,500

Back on 2 November I noted the impending sale of the Edinburgh Royal College of Physicians' copy of Linnaeus' Systema Naturae; the auction took place on Wednesday, and the book fetched £180,500 (not quite reaching the high estimate of £200,000).

The Scotsman reports that the buyer was not identified.
