Aitken New Testament up for sale
I just read in the Huffington Post that a copy of Robert Aitken's 1777 edition of the New Testament is coming up for auction on November 29th. It is being offered by Bloomsbury Auctions in London. Get your checkbook ready - it is expected to bring a price of £100,000 – £150,000 which is about $159,140 to $238,710. According to the Huffington Post there are only two other copies known. One is owned by the Philadelphia Historical Society and the other by the New York Public Library. Send me pictures if you win this piece of history!
