A bank of phone bidders drove the price for a first edition Book of Mormon well beyond its $50/80,000 estimate, all the way up to $103,500 at PBA Galleries’ auction of fine Americana with autographs and manuscripts, October 11.
The cornerstone of the Mormon religion, the 588-page text has soared in value over the last several years, as collectors vie for the increasingly scarce work.
A complete review of the auction will appear in a future issue.
