1537 Matthew-Tyndale Bible Leaf The 1549 Matthew-Tyndale Bible: The First Reprint of the 1537 First Bible Directly Translated Into English

A leaf from the earliest available printing of “Tyndale's Bible”. William Tyndale was the first person to translate the scriptures directly into English from the original Biblical Hebrew and Greek. This 1549 reprinting by John Rogers (aka “Thomas Matthew”) of the 1537 edition is over 470 years old. These large folio-sized leaves, printed on 100% rag cotton paper, measure approximately 12" tall by 7.5" inches wide.

1539-40 Great Bible Leaf The 1539-40 Great Bible:
The First "Authorized" English Bible


A leaf from the first English language Bible fully authorized (not illegal) by the King. These leaves are over 470 years old. Not to be confused with the “Authorized Version”, as it is frequently called, of 1611 by King James… these leaves are instead the much earlier version that was authorized by King Henry the Eighth, founder of the Church of England (“Anglican Church”). Called the “Great Bible” due to its great size, this is England’s first “official” printing of the Bible.
