“There is no friend as

   loyal as a book.”

 

                ― Ernest Hemingway

      The Whole Booke of     

        Psalmes Faithfully  

           Translated into

            English Metre

     Cambridge, MA: 1640
 

This humble and well-worn hymnal was printed in 1640 in Cambridge, Massachusetts, by Stephen Daye, first printer of the Massachusetts Bay Colony. It is the very first book printed in what is now the United States.

Known as The Bay Psalm Book, but really titled The Whole Booke of Psalmes Faithfully Translated into English Metre, it represents what was most sacred to the Puritans--a faithful translation of God's Word, to be sung in worship by the entire congregation. Other Protestant denominations relied on selected paraphrases of the Scripture, but the Puritans believed this could compromise their salvation. The same faith that compelled them to leave England and strike out for the New World prompted them to commit this text to print before all others.

Nobel Prize in literature

 

Nobel Prize in literature has been awarded annually for over a century, or since 1901 when the French poet Sully Prudhomme got them. Exceptions to this are the years 1914, 1918, 1935, 1940, 1941, 1942 and 1943. This particular year was no Nobel laureate in literature prize but was kept in a fund for future years. So far, the 95 authors received the Nobel Prize in literature and the list of those can be found here on the right. The youngest winner was Rudyard Kipling, author of The Jungle Book, but he was 42 years old when he received the award. The oldest was Doris Lessing, 88 years old. 12 women have received the prize, their first Selma Lagerlöf in 1909.
