A polyglot bible in English is an oxymoron. This frequently reprinted production took the English text from a real 1822 polyglot, and left behind the other seven languages. Hills 753 suggests that it was somewhere on the spectrum between a gimmick and a scam. This second edition includes the additional title pages from the 1831 first edition. Hills 790.
