description Even today, Prince Edward Island seems an unlikely place for the Bible to be printed, but in 1832, when the population stood at only 32,000, an obscure printer named John Henry White produced in Charlottetown a two volume edition of the Bible containing 17 lithograph illustrations. It was the first Bible ever printed in what is now Canada.
