Third printing of a complete Latin Bible in England; Middleton’s third edition of Tremellius and Junius’ version of the Bible. Old Testament is version of Junius and Tremellius. Apocrypha is version of Junius. In the New Testament Beza’s Latin version (from the Greek) is given in the inside column and Tremellius’ version (from the Syriac) in the outside column – with marginal references, variants and notes. As explained in full title: Testamenti Veteris Biblia sacra, sive, Libri canonici priscæ iudæorum ecclesiae a Deo traditi Latini recens ex Hebræo facti, brevibusq[ue] scholiis illustrati ab Immanuele Tremellio & Francisco Junio ; accesserunt libri qui Vulgo dicuntur Apocryphi, Latinè redditi & notis quibusdam aucti a Francisco Junio ; multo omnes quam ante emendatiùs editi, numeru locisq[ue] citatis omnibus capitum distinctioni quam hæc editio sequitur exactiùs respondentibus ; quibus etiam adjunximus Novi Testamenti libros ex sermone Syriaco ab eodem Tremellio, & ex Græco a Theodoro Beza in Latinum conversos.


Please Note:  This is a low-resolution photo, which shows the format, but makes reading the text nearly impossible.  In reality, the text of these Bibles is large enough and clear enough to read very easily.
