Description

William Tyndale produced the very first English language New Testament to ever come off a printing press. He was burned at the stake in 1536 for the “crime” of printing these magnificently Illustrated English New Testaments. This 1536 edition was the last and most elaborate one done prior to his death. The woodcut illustrations are simply breathtaking. The calligraphy-like Gothic Blackletter Typeface is also a work of art.

Tyndale’s work paved the way for all subsequent printings of the Bible in English, and 90% of his translation was retained all the way to the 1611 King James Bible. William Tyndale is considered to be the most influential Bible translator in history as well as the “architect of the English Language.” He was said to have been so fluent in eight languages that you would have thought any one of them to be his native tongue!

This Facsimile Reproduction measures approximately 9 inches tall by 6.5 inches wide by just under 2 inches thick, and is bound in hardcover burgundy-brown bonded leather with gold stamping along the spine.  We have photographically enlarged this reproduction to approximately 125% the size of the original for ease of reading. While an original Tyndale New Testament from the 1500’s is available in the Platinum Room of our Ancient Rare Bibles & Books section for nearly $100,000 , this reproduction is much more affordable, and quite beautiful as it features many large woodcut illustrations. You will definitely want to make this visually magnificent edition a part of your library. Discover what the English language New Testament looked like in its original form.
SPECIAL BONUS: As our free gift to you, with your purchase of this facsimile; you will receive an early King James Bible Leaf and an early Geneva Bible Leaf. These leaves normally sell for $59 each!
