From English to Algonquian: Early New England Translations

Bible. Second Edition

Title

Bible. Second Edition

Date

1685

Description

This is the second edition of the Algonquian Bible, printed in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in 1685. This edition is “much corrected and amended” from the first, and took approximately five years to print. The imprint statement on the title page attributes the printing only to Samuel Green, though James Printer was likely assisting Green at the time.

Like the first edition of the Algonquian Bible, the text appears in double columns on each page and is printed almost entirely in Algonquian. Charles Evans’s American Bibliography entry for the second edition of the Bible states that the Reverend John Cotton aided Eliot in the revision work.
