|English Version of the Polyglott Bible|
|Old Covenant||New Covenant|
This is a thick, pocket-size edition of the King James Version. There is no evidence of what the other languages or versions of the original Polyglott Bible, of which this was a part, are. The print is extemely small. There are two columns of text on each page, with a narrow column of cross-references between them. At the beginning of each Testament are two paintings of Biblical settings. Following the New Testament is the second inclusion of the Book of Psalms, this time in metre.
On the flyleaf is the following handwritten inscription: "Presented to Mifs. Julia Parker by a friend Jan. 1st, 1860, China, A. G."

[Tyndale House, Cambridge, United Kingdom]
In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
