1687 Bible auctioned at eBay for $2,800.

In the 1600s, a printer named Robert Everingham (1645-1705) printed bibles and many other various books. Although these show up at auction occasionally, they fetch a high price, usually from $500 up to $2000+. I have not been able to outbid book collectors yet.
