A very quick Google search confirms my guess that you will spend a minimum of $1,000 for such a beast. "Bound material" makes life even tougher, because it's often hard to get pages to lay flat enough for a good scan.

I would be idly curious to learn of other solutions.

BTW the "ABBYY Fine Reader" OCR software that comes with (at least some) Epson consumer scanners is remarkably good, even with poor originals, wierd fonts and slanted scans.
