Footnotes

  • FIRST EDITION OF THE IRISH BIBLE contained in one volume. "This convenient pocket edition (3,000 copies) was printed, at the expense of the Hon. R. Boyle and others, in roman type, chiefly for the Gaelic-speaking Highlanders in Scotland... the book never found favour in the Highland parishes of Scotland. The people were as ignorant of the roman type as of the Irish character" (Darlow & Moule).
