Genesis Title Leaf from the 1549 Thomas Matthew
“Tyndale” Bible”

John Rogers, operating under the assumed name “Thomas Matthew,” was the first person ever to print a complete English Bible that was translated directly from the original Greek & Hebrew. He took William Tyndale’s New Testament and completed Tyndale’s work on the Old Testament, publishing his First Edition in 1537. This is a leaf from his 1549 Second Edition.
