1581 COMPLETE Geneva Breeches BIBLE of Pilgrims+ Book of Common Prayer + Psalms Exceedingly Rare Christopher Barker DATED Title Pages The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into English, preceding the King James translation by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of 16th century Protestantism and was the Bible used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim’s Progress. It was one of the Bibles taken to America on the Mayflower. This version of the Holy Bible is significant because, of the very first time, a mechanically printed, mass-produced Bible was made available directly to the general public. “Breeches Bible” 1579: translated Genesis 3:7 as “and they sowed figge-tree leaves together, and made themselves breeches.” (This less precise translation was glossed in the margin with a more accurate, albeit longer, translation.) The accepted meaning is “coverings” (the KJV has “aprons”). Title: The Bible. Translated according to the Ebrew and Greeke, and conferred with the best translations in diuers languages. With most profitable annotations … And also a most profitable concordance… Published: London, Christopher Barker, 1581.
