Rare Mormon Book went up for auction, and sold more than Harry Potter

The AP reports that a rare Mormon book sold Wednesday at auction for  $105,600. The book is 177 years old and was discovered when a man was cleaning out his house.

Only a few thousand copies of these were printed, and even fewer remain today—making this book extremely rare.

This book is considered to be on par with the Bible, that is, if you’re speaking to a Mormon.

The AP article has a photo of the yellowed pages that appear like they’ll crumble upon a human touch, but for the most part the book is in decent condition.
