Taichung, Taiwan: Maryknoll Language School, 1972. First edition thus; 8vo, pp. 1278; printed in red and black from typescript; 2 folding maps (The Holy Land and the eastern Mediterranean), illustrations in the text; near fine copy in original red limp leatherette. "This translation is the result of the combined efforts of Protestant and Catholic translators. This work was begun in 1965 and continued until its completion in September 1972. The Four Gospels were first translated and published separately in 1968, because the Catholics had a particularly urgent need for the Gospels for their Sunday liturgy and for their preparation for a homily based on the Gospels. After the Acts, Letters, and Revelation were completed, the Four Gospels were revised and included in this translation of the entire New Testament" (preface). This translation represents the first time Protestatnt and Catholic missionaries have collaborated in the production of a common New Testament in the colloquial language of the people of Taiwan. OCLC locates 3 copies only: one in Taiwan, one in Columbia, and one at the Maryknoll Society in N.Y. Item #64016
