Catalogue Note

The Hutter Polyglot, existing in four variants, with the sixth column printed in either Slovenian, Italian, Low German or French (as here), only went as far as Ruth. Hutter published his polyglot version of the New Testament in twelve languages in the same year. The Book of Malachias is one of several polyglot editions of separate books of the Bible issued by Hutter.
