RETRANSMISSION TO CORRECT THAT PURITANS NOT PILGRAMS PRINTED THE BOOK -This April 2013 photo provided by Sotheby's and taken in New York shows what they describe 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. 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. The last time a copy came on the auction block in 1947, it sold for a record auction price of $151,000. At the time, it surpassed auction prices for the Gutenberg Bible, Shakespeare’s First Folio and Audubon’s “Birds of America.”(AP Photo/Sotheby's)
