Thou shall commit adultery!

In 1631, sloppy printers produced a King James Version of the Bible. In the 10 Commandments it says “Thou shalt commit adultery” instead of “Thou shalt NOT commit adultery”. Out of 1,000 copies, only 11 are known to survive and each copy is very valuable due to the error.
