In 1631, the royal printer of London printed a run of the King James Bible with one glaring typo: The seventh commandment read, “Thou shalt commit adultery.” By order of the king, copies of the “Wicked Bible” were destroyed and the printer was stripped of his printer’s license and fined 300 pounds (today’s equivalent of $53,300). With one proofreading error, his livelihood, savings, and reputation were gone.*
