Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1865 edition. Excerpt: ...for many troubles1." Here Farman rightly gives spearwas as the Anglo-Saxon version, in accordance with which he also translates locusta, grcesh oppa?; while his brother scribe, preferring lopestre," renders St. John's fare "polypus (or lobster) and wild honey: " Farman in the same verse, like the Anglo-Saxon and Gothic translators, bestows on the Baptist a garment of elephants' hair4, whereas the other glossists have made acquaintance with, "the camel, that great beast8." But further researches in North Anglian zoology must be left to the reader, and the subject dismissed for the present with the rendering of spongiam," bowl or cup full," J. xix. 29'. The verse just referred to shows both glossists to be quite as little at home in the vegetable as in the animal kingdom; they give no better rendering than " reed" (or rod) for hyssopus7, which they take to be synonymous with arundo in the parallel passage of St. Matthew. But this blunder is trivial compared with that perpetrated J. xv. 4, where a noteworthy turn is given to the text by palmcs being taken for "palm-tree," and in vite for "in the vineyard8."
