Printed in Hebrew, English, Greek, and Latin. Opposite pages bear duplicate numbering, and each page includes four numbered texts in two columns. Concordance to the following: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy; Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel (Vulgate 1 Kings) , 2 Samuel (Vulgate 2 Kings) , 1 Kings (Vulgate 3 Kings) , 2 Kings (Vulgate 4 Kings) , 1 Chronicles (Vulgate 1 Paralipomenon) , 2 Chronicles (Vulgate 2 Paralipomenon) , Ezra (Vulgate 1 Esdras) , Nehemiah (Vulgate 2 Esdras) , Esther, Job, Psalms. Ending with Psalms [CXIX], remaining fourth volume absent. Three volume set only (missing Hagiography and New Testament; also without prolegomena from Samuel Lee) . The most inclusive of the great Polyglots since the London, or Walton's, Polyglot of 1657, it was printed by Samuel Bagster of Paternoster Row: The first issue [our set] of the ‘Biblia Sacra Polyglotta Bagsteriana’ appeared between 1817 and 1828, four volumes in foolscap octavo and quarto form, containing, besides the prolegomena of Dr. Samuel Lee, the Hebrew Old Testament with points, the Samaritan Pentateuch, the Septuagint Greek version of the Old Testament, the Latin Vulgate, the authorised English version, the Greek Textus Receptus of the New Testament, and the Peshito or ancient Syriac version. However, due to a fire at the printers in March 1822, very few of these sets were actually distributed; In particular, Lowndes states only twenty-three copies of the New Testament portion [the one volume missing in our set] were preserved. A folio edition of the polyglot was published in 1828, repeated in 1831, and subsequently, presenting eight languages at the opening of the volume, and including all the ancient and modern versions above mentioned. Copies of the different texts and translations were brought out separately, and in various combinations. The two volume folio edition (1828; printed many times thereafter) , encompassing the complete old and new testament in eight languages, is more commonly found. The third fascicle in the set has a pasted in advertisement on verso of board, announcing that the polylglott bible will soon be issued in a two part series. Subjects: Polyglot Bible â€" 1827-1828. Biblia sacra polyglotta Bagsteriana. Not a single set of the first issue listed on OCLC. A single listing exists for a single volume, which survives at a library in Scottland. Original printed Boards worn and rubbed at edges, outer edges of leaves lightly bumped, spine rebacked, otherwise fresh and clean. Very good condition. (SPEC-39-20) Spec6, bible3, chrheb1. (ja).
