The Bible is not only the Word of God, but also an important part of world history. Rare and antique Bibles can be extremely valuable. Recently, a rare 1669 King James Bible sold for over $157,000!
People travelled from all over Sydney to make a bid on the intricately illustrated Bible, which was printed in London by royal printers John Bill and Christopher Barker.
The auction was so packed, the crowd spilled out the door, Ms Stannard said.
“There were four bidders in the auction, but the man who won is a North Shore local who goes to church in the area and will have a special protective case built for it before he gives it to the recipient as a gift in December,” she said.
