The Bay Psalm Book is a book of many firsts—the first English-language book in North America, the first book of American poetry, and the first instance in a long and vital history of printing in America.” Rubenstein said, “I appreciate the hard work of Jim Billington and the Library of Congress professionals in organizing this exhibition. I hope those interested in our nation’s early history will take the time to see this unique assemblage of American treasures.”
