A reprint of the 1537 "Matthew's Bible" and interestingly a "treakle" Bible (cf. Jer. 8:22); earlier than the better known "treacle" Bible of 1568, 1578. "In 1537 a revised English Bible known as 'Matthew's Bible' appeared. . . . The ascription to "Thomas Matthew" was nominal . . . its real editor being John Rogers" (Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church). A large fragment of this early Bible in English, comprising Tyndale's Prologue and then Genesis to the end of Ecclesiastes, but lacking all before leaf A1 and all after Ecclesiastes (i.e., leaf Kk2). Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Folio. An incomplete copy, see below. Herbert 75; STC (rev. ed.) 2078; ESTC S106941. 19th-century plain sheep, abraded, dry, and top of spine pulled. Lacking all before leaf A1and all after Ecclesiastes (i.e., leaf Kk2). Title-leaf and first leaf of the Kalendar in good facsimile. Many margins defective sometimes costing letters and small words of text and also sidenotes. Priced for its faults, not its considerable interest. Bookseller Inventory # 33867
