Catalogue Note

First edition of the complete Bible in Irish. This pocket edition was published at the expense of the Hon. Robert Boyle and others in Roman letter expressly for use of the Gaelic-speaking Highlanders of Scotland. The Old Testament was based on William Bedel's 1685 Irish version (see preceding lot); and the New Testament on the 1602 translation from the Greek by Archbishop William O'Donnell of Tuam. The transliteration from Irish letter was made by Robert Kirk, minister of Aberfoyle and author of the metrical Psalter in Gaelic of 1684.
