Bayly (or Bailey), Anselm Lld
Bayly (Or Bailey), Anselm LL.D., an English clergyman, who died in 1794, was sub-dean of his majesty's Chapel Royal, and published a number of educational and theological works (1751-89). His most pretentious work was, The Old Testament, English and Hebrew, with Remarks Critical and Grammatical on the Hebrew, and Corrections of the English (Lond. 1774, 4 vols. 8vo). "In this edition the authorized version, with a few alterations, chiefly in the punctuation, is printed so as to face the Hebrew; a few notes are added of an explanatory kind; — the Keri readings are conveniently placed on the margin; and summaries of the books are appended. The work is of little value, except as it supplies a legible Hebrew text. The text is pointed, but only the athnach and soph-pasuk accents are inserted." Dr. Bayly published also a Hebrew Grammar, and a Practical Treatise on Singing (ibid. 1771).
