Bay Psalm book sold at auction!

One of 11 known copies of the 1640 Bay Psalm book sold at auction on Tuesday in New York City. The auction was conducted by Sotheby's on behalf of Boston's Old South Church. It was purchased by David Rubenstein for 14.2 million dollars. He plans to loan it to libraries around the country. You can pick up a facsimile by Applewood books for slightly less - just over 11 dollars.
