1378 Wycliffe New Testament: First Printed Edition (1731) Facsimile Reproduction
Wycliffe's hand-written manuscripts of the English scriptures are very challenging to read, but being the very first English scripture translation (albeit a translation from the Latin, and not the original Biblical languages), the Wycliffe translation is extremely historically important. For this reason, in the 1731, a reprint of Wycliffe's circa 1378 manuscript was produced in modern easier-to-read type. It preserves the original Middle-English spellings and wordings 100% faithfully, but it simply makes the text easier to read by rendering the text as typeface, rather than being hand-written.
Most importantly; this 1731 publication of Wycliffe's circa 1378 translation of the scripture in English is the first printed edition of the first English translation of God's Word! It is an extremely important milestone in printing history, and Biblical history. Only 160 copies of this book were printed in 1731, and fewer than 10 of them are known to exist today. They are valued at close to $100,000 each. You can own a beautiful copy of the first printed edition of the first English translation of the scriptures for a tiny fraction of that cost.
This facsimile reproduction measures approximately 12 inches tall & 8 inches wide by just under 1 inch thick, and is bound in bonded leather.
