The first book written and printed in the New World, The Bay Psalm Book holds a unique place in our cultural and religious history. Richard Mather and a group of his fellow New England clergy transcribed biblical psalms into metered verse. In 1640, just 20 years after the Mayflower landed at Plymouth Rock, they printed 1700 copies in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Originals of this edition are extremely rare-only ten are believed to exist-and needless to say are not readily accessible to the general public. With this faithful reproduction of that first edition, one of the most important books ever published in America will finally be available again to a modern audience.
