    The Bay Psalm BookThe auction of one of only 11 surviving copies of the Bay Psalm Book – the first book printed in what is now the United States of America – set a new world auction record for any printed book when it sold for $14.2 million. This price is well in excess of the previous auction record for a printed book, established in December 2010 at Sotheby’s London when a copy of John James Audubon’sBirds of America sold for $11.5 million.
