Leaf from the Polychrome Bible
Furness, Horace Howard, 1833-1912
A new translation from the Hebrew into English under the direction of great Shakespearean scholar, Horace Howard Furness. Original sources used by the translator are indicated by the background of different colors. Eight tints or color were used in Joshua alone: dark red, let red, dark blue, light blue, purple green, brown ad orange. The cost of editing and color printing was so great, that only a few books of the Bible were issued and the undertaking was then discontinued.
