dc.description.abstractThis image is from a collection created by Etta Hanson and given to the College in 1954. All items are from Otto Ege's estate. The leaf was contained and mounted in a mat created by Otto Ege, as were all other leaves in this collection. There is a typed description at the bottom of the mat, which reads: "Londini. Imprimebat Thomas Roycroft. The fourth and most accurate of the great polyglots edited by Dr. Brian Walton. One of the first English books to be sold by subscription (pound symbol 10.). Nine hundred orders were received during the first two months. This leaf from the Old Testament contains the text in Hebrew; the Latin Vulgate; the Greek Septuagint; the Chaldee Paraphrase; the Syriae and Arabic versions, each with a Latin translation. The type character for the nine languages used in this Bible were all of english make. It was the typographical achievement of the century, and for it Charles II made Roycroft the “King’s Printer of Oriental languages.” (Darlow and Moule 1446)"en_US
