RNS-BAY-PSALTER

NEW YORK (AP) –  A tiny book of psalms from 1640 has sold for $14.2
million in New York City, setting an auction record for a printed book.

The Bay Psalm Book is believed to be the first book printed in what’s
now the United States. Only 11 copies survive in varying degrees of
completeness.

The book sold at Sotheby’s auction house in Manhattan on Tuesday
evening was one of two copies held by Boston’s Old South Church.

It was bought by American businessman and philanthropist David
Rubenstein, who plans to lend it to libraries around the country. Its
presale estimate was $15 million to $30 million.

A copy of John James Audubon’s "Birds of America" was the previous
record-holder. It sold for $11.5 million at Sotheby’s in 2010.
