The Holy Bible: containing the Old Testament and the New.
Containing the complete Old and New Testaments translated from English into the Algonquian language, the Algonquian Bible was the first Bible printed in British North America. John Eliot and his native translators, including Job Nesuton, labored for more than a decade to complete the work. Printers Samuel Green, Marmaduke Johnson, and James Printer spent nearly three years at the press, printing its more than 1,200 pages and finally completing the Bible in 1663. Only a few of the original 1,000 or more printed copies remain.
