Samuel "Newman's famous Concordance was the third in English ever published and greatly superior to its two predecessors. The first edition was published in London in 1643...The second edition was published at Cambridge in 1662 and the concordance was usually known after that as the Cambridge Concordance. The concordance was reprinted at least as late as 1889, almost 250 years after it was first published."

Newman, Samuel, 1600?-1663.

A large and complete concordance to the Bible in English, according to the last translation. First collected by Clement Cotton, and now much enlarged and amended for the good both of schollers and others: far exceeding the most perfect that ever was extant in our language, both in ground-work and building, by Samuel Newman, a poor labourer in the Lords vineyard. The manifold use and benefit of this work is sufficiently declared in the prefaces to the reader.
