World's most expensive book to be auctioned?

A copy of the “Bay Psalm Book”, the first book printed in what is now the U.S., in 1640, and is considered the world’s most valuable book, with an auction estimate of $30 million, is on display at Sotheby’s in New York, April 12, 2013. 

This final note, perhaps not directly Thanksgiving-related, but from the Massachusetts Bay colony: The Bay Psalm book, one of the world's rarest books, is being auctioned tonight.

It could fetch as much as $30 million, printed in 1640 by Puritans who didn't like the Church of England's translations of the Bible.

There are only 11 copies that remain in existence. This one comes from the Old South Church in Boston.
