The Bay Psalm Book May Fetch $30 Million at Auction!

In a CNN article titled Rare Psalm book may sell for $30 million by Kristen Kiraly, she writes the following:
A rare copy of the first book printed in what is now the United States of America may sell for as much as $30 million when it comes up for auction in November, according to Sotheby's.

Congregational Puritans first published the Bay Psalm Book in 1640 in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Sotheby's presale estimate for one of 11 remaining copies ranges from $15 million to $30 million.

The last time a Bay Psalm Book appeared at auction was in 1947.
Wow, I wonder if the Bay Psalm Book, will actually fetch $30 million dollars at auction later this year??
