$68,500 for Bible signed by Einstein


NEW YORK — A Bible with an inscriptio­n from Albert Einstein has sold for $68,500 at an auction in New York City.

The Bible was part of a fine books and manuscript­s auction at Bonhams on Tuesday. The Germanborn physicist and his wife signed it in 1932 and gifted it to an American friend named Harriett Hamilton.

The auction house says Einstein writes in the German inscriptio­n the Bible “is a great source of wisdom and consolatio­n and should be read frequently.”
