COMPENDIUM OF BIBLE SOCIETIES,
IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD, WITH THE DATE OF THEIR ORGANIZATION
AND NUMBER OF COPIES ISSUED
The fact will be readily appreciated by all who are familiar with statistical tables that a compendium like this can be only an approximation to the truth. The figures are compiled from various sources, but mainly from recent reports of the British and Foreign and the Württemberg Bible Societies. There is a liability to error on one side for want of late returns, and on the other because when one society purchases of another the same issues may be counted in the report of each. It should also be noticed that the aggregate includes not Bibles only, but also Testaments and integral portions of the Bible.

The American Bible Society is a charitable institution, whose sole object is to encourage a wider circulation of the Holy Scriptures without note or comment.
Its endeavors are directed primarily to the circulation of the Scriptures in all parts of the United States and Territories, by sale at cost to all who are able to purchase, and by free gifts to the destitute.
As opportunity offers it extends its influence to other countries, Christian, Mohammedan, and pagan, to the end that the Scriptures may be translated into all the languages of the earth and distributed as widely as possible.
It invites thc contributions and co-operation of all who accept the Bible as their rule of life, and believe that every human being is entitled to know what it teaches concerning truth and duty.
Contributions may be sent through its auxiliaries, or directly to its Treasurer, Mr. William Foulke, Bible House, New York.
