Wisdom is Better than Rubies

This oak bookcase once lived in the Robert Treat Paine house on Joy Street in Boston. It now sits in the portrait gallery of the Massachusetts Historical Society. Its upper front panels read "Wisdom is better than rubies."

The KIng James version of the Proverb is:

For wisdom is better than rubies;
and all the things that may be
desired are not to be compared to it.
-Proverbs 8:11
