Description

1551 Tyndale New Testament

Leaves from Taverner’s Bibles are scarce because very few Taverner’s Bibles were ever printed. The Taverner’s Bible ultimately became a curious footnote in history and printing that very few knew existed. Taverner’s 1551 printing contained all of William Tyndale’s translated New Testament. Even 15 years after his martyrdom, Tyndale’s work was and still is today highly valued and respected.

 

1569 Bishops’ Bible

 

This leaf is from a Second edition, now first printed in quarto, of the Bishops’ version. Printed during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I.

The Bishops’ Bible is an English translation of the Bible that was produced under the authority of the established Church of England in 1568. It was substantially revised in 1572, and this revised edition was to be prescribed as the base text for the Authorized King James Version of 1611.

The promoter of the exercise and the leading figure in translating was Matthew Parker, Archbishop of Canterbury, who was also Queen Elizabeth’s personal tutor.  

Geneva Quarto Pre-1644
 
A leaf from one of the earliest printings of the famous Geneva Bible: printed between the 1560s and 1644 … these leaves are over 370 years old. They come with a beautiful Historical Brochure & Certificate of Authenticity. The Geneva Bible (also known as the “Breeches” Bible) was the Bible of the Protestant Reformation. It was produced more than 50 years before the King James Bible, and it remained the most popular English language Bible among the people until decades after the introduction of the King James Bible. Whether framed and displayed in your home or given as a wonderfully unique gift: it is sure to draw attention.
