Plantin Polyglot 1569-1572


Staff member
Over the years I have had to look up things in this and while I know I had to access it once or maybe more than once in a local library's rare book room (SMU's Bridwell Library), I had thought I had found all or many of the OT volumes had been digitized by someone. But today I could not find anything in my bookmarks or after a hard search. So maybe I was not remembering correctly? I did find the NT digitized but can no longer find anything using the name of the pdf. A set is on sale at Christies if you have the estimated between $400,000 and $600,000 for it.
Any way, anyone remember or know about whether this was or is online. 8 volumes.

There are links to those volumes just a little bit down on this page. Also see the tabs at the top of this page to a plethora of English, Greek, Latin and German Bibles.
