Variant printing of the first edition of the earliest complete Latin Bible printed in England, translated by Immanuel Tremellius and Franciscus Junius. Portions of the Tremellius¿Junius Old Testament had been previously published in various forms; Darlow and Moule note that here, "To Tremellius and Junius' version of the O.T., and Junius' translation of the Apocrypha, is added Tremellius' translation of the N.T. made from the Syriac." The Old Testament, Apocrypha, and New Testament are here in six parts, each with separate title-page bearing an engraved vignette and each section including engraved head- and tailpieces in addition to decorative capitals. The publication information in some sections gives "Impensis G.B." (George Bishop), as opposed to "C.B." (Christopher Barker) or "I.H." (Harrison), in whose names other variants were issued.
