Abstract

A print run of 10,000 copies of the Hexateuch (the first six books of the Old Testament: Genesis to Joshua) was arranged by the British Foreign Bible Society (BFBS), half each given to the CMS and Wesleyan missions. Copies were seen through the press by John Telford, but an illness resulted in Edwin Norris, the English philologist and expert in cuneiform, taking over the responsibility. This copy was given to Tamihana Te Rauparaha on the occasion of his visit to London in 1851. The map of the Red Sea map has been tipped in.
