Abstract: This 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: "Philadelphia: Printed by Jane Aitken, No.71 North Third Street. The first translation of the Septuagint into English by Charles Thomson, who was the first Secretary of Congress, and who retired from that position to continue his Biblical studies (1789). The importance of this version, the result of twenty years’ labor with little or no assistance of reference material or scholars, has frequently been recognized. It was freely consulted by the revision committee of 1881. (Darlow and Moule 1006)"
