[Title in Cree syllabics: The Bible in the Cree language (New Testament).]
London: W. M. Watts for the British and Foreign Bible Society, 1862. 8vo, pp. [4], 292; text in double column; later brown cloth library binding, gilt title and call number direct on spine, t.e.g.; near fine. An Ayer Linguistics duplicate, with Newberry Library label and release stamp on pastedown, and number stamp on verso of title page. The credit for the translation of the Bible into Cree has been contested. Pilling concludes that the primary translators were the Reverend William Mason and his wife, Sophia Mason, with contributions from Henry Steinhauer and John Sinclair. Pilling, Proof-sheets, 2494; Pilling, Algonquian, p. 339; Darlow and Moule, 3130.
