A $14 million Bible


The Bay Psalm book was the first book printed (in 1640) in North America. As you would guess from the name, it is a translation of the book of Psalms into English, in meter. The book was used for over a century but is not currently in use. There are eleven known copies still in existence.

One of those copies sold back in November for $14.2 million. It was purchased by a David Rubenstein. Rubenstein, according to Forbes, has a net worth of $2.6 billion – thus his ability to spend $14.2 million on a three-hundred-year-old book of psalms. He said that he would loan the book to libraries across the country.
