Title page: The New Testament of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, translated out of the original Greek; and with the former translations diligently compared and revised. New York: Printed by M. L. & W. A. Davis, For Gaine & T. Eyck, S. Campbell, John Reid, John Broome & Son, E. Duyckinck, T. & J. Swords, T. S. Arden, P. A. Mesier, S. Stephens, and T. B. Jansen & Co. 1801.

Copies of the relevant pages of the Bible were obtained at the Broome County Historical Society, Binghampton, Broome Co., New York.

Since the Bible is copyright 1801, I presume that it was owned by Joshua and Hannah Whitney's oldest son, Joshua Whitney, but I have no confirmation of that. The Bible is part of a large collection of Whitney papers and documents held by the Broome County Historical Society.
