The Library Just Save You $14.2 Million!

One of the last 11 copies of the Bay Psalm Book, printed in 1640, sold at auction last Tuesday, November 26th, for $14.2 million. No other copy has been up for sale since 1947.

While it lacks a little of the tactile sensation of the real thing, the Library can offer you a digital copy of the complete Bay Psalm Book as part of Early English Books Online, which features digitized copies of every book printed in the United Kingdom from 1473-1700.
