COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - An elaborate $10,000 Bible that includes gold accents and exotic German paper has been donated to the main library at the University of Missouri-Columbia.
The Columbia Missourian reports that the Pennyroyal Caxton Bible is one of only 400 created by illustrator and designer Barry Moser of Hatfield, Mass. Ellis Library special collections head Alla Barabtarlo says the 1996 Bible is "astonishing" and "beautiful."
It was donated by New York City businessman Bruce Kovner and arrived at the library in August.
Right now, the Bible is being kept in a climate-controlled room. But it's expected to be moved downstairs by Christmas for a new exhibit, "Verba Sacra," or sacred words in Latin. The exhibit will detail the history of the scriptures through the ages.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Fans of St. Louis Cardinals great Stan Musial will get a chance to own a piece of his personal collection - items ranging from game-worn jerseys to championship rings to harmonicas - through an online auction that's now underway.
Musial died in January at age 92, a year after his wife died. The family kept many mementos and donated many others.
Musial's grandson, Brian Musial Schwarze, says Stan the Man's modest home in Ladue, Mo., was filled with items even relatives didn't know existed.
With so much stuff, the family decided to auction some of it off.
The auction of 400 lots of items began Thursday. Heritage Auctions of Dallas is hosting the online auction. Bidding closes Nov. 7 through Nov. 9, depending on the lot.
