« On this wonderful performance the voice of criticism has been uniformly favourable. No praise can transcend its merits. Various are the authorities, both in this country and on the Continent, which have spoken of it in a grateful and commendatory manner. This Polyglot,' says Michaelis, is of the utmost importance to a critic, not only on account of the extracts which it

contains from a variety of important MSS., but particularly on account of the Oriental versions from which he must collect important readings to the New Testament, etc.'"- Dibdin.

“Cette Polyglotte est celle, qu'on recherche d'avantage, parce qu'elle est plus complète et plus correcte que les autres, et qu'elle contient neuf langues differentes. Les savants qui, après Walton et le D. Castelli, ont le plus contribué à sa publication, soit en revoyant les textes, ou en les traduisant, soit en fournissant d'importantes collations, soit enfin en aidant l'editeur de leurs conseils, sont l'archevêque Usher, Herbert Thorndike, Edw. Pococke, Th. Greaves, Abrah. Wheelock, Sam. Clarke, Dudley Loftus, Th. Hyde, Alex. Huish, Th. Pierce, &c.”- Brunet.

This Polyglot is of the utmost importance to a critic, not only on account of the extracts which it contains from a variety of important MSS., but particularly on account of the Oriental versions, from which he must collect various readings to the New Testament. Though several of the MSS. which are quoted in the Polyglot have since that time been more accurately collated, and no one would now have recourse to that edition for the readings of the Codex Alexandrinus or Cantabrigiensis; yet some of the MSS. which Usher had collected, have never since been examined, Mill and Wetstein having inserted those readings in their collections as they found them in the Polyglot. Now, as errors of the press are unavoidable, especially in a work like Wetstein's, it is necessary to have recourse to the Polyglot whenever a doubt arises in regard to the accuracy of a quotation by Mill or Wetstein, in order to see whether these MSS., which were collated for the London Polyglot, bave the readings in question or not.”Bp. Marsh's Michælis. 1872 BIBLIA SACRA POLYGLOTTA, Textus Archetypos Versionesque præcipuas

In this edition of the New Testament, the editor has given a copy of the Hebrew Text, similar to that of his celebrated edition of the Old Testament Scriptures in Hebrew; the great peculiarity of which is, that the serviles are indicated by the letters being formed in the open character. By this means, together with the plan adopted of supplying, in a diminutive character, those letters of the root that are dropped, the work, especially to the Hebrew student, is rendered invaluable. 1875 JONAH POLYGLOTT.

This version for the use of the Hussites, by Benatska, is not mentioned by Brunet. This Bohemian work, printed at Venice, is even scarcer than the Illyrian Preces and the Breviarium Croaticum twice printed by the Andreas Asulanus in the same city. Consult Ungar, and the various notices by the bibliographers Le Long, Goetze, Clement, Videkind, Kleich, and Elsner, who all speak unequivocally of its rarity and value.

Halberstad (date on woodcut-frontispiece, 1520) 1522 Carefully described by Goeze, in his “ Historie der gedruckten Niedersächsischen Bibeln von 1470-1621,4to. Halle, 1675, pp. 95-105. Goeze mentions (pages 104-5) that this Bible is very scarce, even more so than the Lubeck edition; he never saw any other copy beyond his own; he thinks that Luther's version, appearing shortly after the present, must have injured its sale to that extent, that a large portion of the entire edition may have got used as waste paper. Goeze concludes by calling this edition “ A JEWEL,” the sight of which must always be pleasant to a connoisseur of Literary treasures.
