The first book written and printed in the New World, the Bay Psalm Book holds a unique place in our cultural history. A group of New England Clergy, believed led by Richard Mather, transcribed psalms into metered verse and, in 1640, printed it in Cambridge, Mass. Originals are extremely rare. With this reproduction of the first edition, the earliest book published in America will finally be available again to a modern audience.
