Guess The Book: Updated

Something a little different today.

I'll post a picture of the item I found, you guys guess what book it was found in.
Here's the pic:


April 16 1940
Received from J.C. Conway
20.00 Dollars
Mrs. Nils Sturbug (just a guess on that)


Edit: Here's the book:


"Sapphira and the Slave Girl" by Willa Cather. Published by Knopf, 1940.
Somehow I don't think the receipt was for the book.

Although I can't see the specific year, I'm guessing "War and Peace".

The Bible (most frequently sold book, right? or one of them? not that the $20 is probably for a book in 1940, but anyway.)
