Christianismus Primitivus

Thomas Grantham's Christianismus Primitivus 1st Ed. 1678 went for $480 on ebay back in February. Sounds like a steal to me. I hope whoever got it appreciates it. If I'd known about it I would have pressured my seminary's library to snatch it. I wonder how often it is that 17th century Baptist artifacts come to public market.

That's an odd way to sell such a rare volume.
