79. World’s Most Expensive Book of Scripture Sold at Auction – over $14 Million

The Star

Books can be worth loads of money and this book of scripture isn’t any different. The Bay Psalm Book dates from as far back as 1640 and also has the title of “first book ever printed in British North America.” There were only 1,7000 of them ever produced and this particular copy was just one of eleven that are known to still be in existence. It sold in a Sotheby’s New York auction held in 2013 for a whopping $14,165,000, which is the most a book has ever fetched at an auction ever before.
