Old South Church Votes to Sell Rare Psalm Book from the 1600s and Silver
The Bay Psalm Book “printed in Cambridge in 1640, was the first book published in British North America and quickly became the standard psalter used on Sunday mornings throughout the Massachusetts Bay Colony. Eleven copies of it have survived, and all are now owned by major institutions. No copy has been on the market since 1947.”
