Slightly imperfect.

The first book printed in English in North America. The version of the Psalms was made about the year 1636, the principal divines of the country each translating a portion. The principal part of the work was committed to Mr. Richard Mather, minister of the church in Dorchester, who probably wrote the preface also, and to Mr. Thomas Weld and Mr. John Eliot, associate ministers of the church in Roxbury. The work of printing was completed in 1640, and the new Psalm book was adopted at once by nearly every congregation in the colony of Massachusetts Bay, and for that reason it came to be known as the Bay Psalm book. Of this famous book there are only ten copies known to be extant, of which only four are perfect.
