Two Treasures of Marsh’s Library
I should like to begin this volume about the treasures of the Marsh Library by discussing the significance of two items in the collection - the Spanish Polyglot Bible, the Complutensis, published in 1517, and the vocalized Mishna of 1646. These are two extraordinary publishing ventures which involved intimate cooperative effort of Jewish and Christian scholars, and which were each part of Millenarian plans and expectations of the Christian sponsors and partners. Both of these works are exceedingly rare. The Marsh copies of the Mishna are not presently known.1
