Oldest English Scripture Ever Printed on American Soil
Exclusive Offer Only Found on

The 1709 Algonquin / English Scriptures:
The First English Scripture Ever Printed
on American Soil

It is widely known that the 1782 Robert Aitken Bible was the very first printing of an English language Bible in America, as well as being the only Bible ever printed by Act of Congress.  It is also widely known that
the very first Bible of any kind printed in America was the 1663 Eliot Indian Bible, printed in the Massachusetts (Algonquin) Native American language.

To claim that any printing of the scriptures in English occurred in America 73 years before the 1782 Aitken Bible, is shocking indeed... but true. In 1709, in Boston, Massachusetts, a small Diglot (a parallel-column printing) of The Book Psalms & Gospel of John, in both English and Massachusetts Algonquin, was produced for Christians to use in evangelizing the Native Americans.

Please inquire about available leaves from this all-but-forgotten 1709 milestone of printing history was recently discovered, and they now represent the earliest available printing of God's Word in the English language in America... by a margin of 73 years before the next one was done!  These are the only such leaves available anywhere at any price.
