Another milestone copy of a banned book has made the news.
A first-edition copy of New Canaan by Thomas Morton — the first book to be banned in America — is headed to auction.
New Canaan, published in 1637, denounces Puritans and calls for a diverse community to be established in America, which is why it was banned.
In order to acquire this copy, though, you’ll need about $35,000 to $45,000 (and, of course, some very specific storage options), according to Electric Literature.
