Aitken’s 1777 New Testament

There are only three known copies of Robert Aitken’s 1777 New Testament still in existence today. One can be found in the New York Public Library’s collection. Another belongs to the Philadelphia Historical Society. A third one was auctioned off by London’s Bloomsbury Auctions in November 2011 and sold to an undisclosed buyer. There are no known copies of his 1778 and 1779 editions.
