Colonial Psalm Book Auction-6 [Duplicate]

FILE - This April 2013 file photo provided by Sotheby's and taken in New York shows what the auction house describes as "the world's most valuable book," the Bay Psalm Book, which is the first book ever printed in what is now the United States. Sotheby's, offering it Tuesday evening, Nov. 26, 2013 with a presale estimate of $15 million to $30 million, says it could set an auction record for any printed book. The book was published in Cambridge, Mass., by the Puritan leaders of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. It came just 20 years after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. (AP Photo/Sotheby's, File)
