Metuchen's Herbal Sold
One last followup (presumably) to the story of Metuchen, NJ's 1636 edition of Gerard's Herball. Yesterday, the Asbury Park Pressreports, about thirty people came to see the book before ownership was transferred to the buyer, described as "a New Jersey man who wished to remain anonymous." He bought the book for "more than $5,000."
