About this Item

An interesting variant copy of the => first edition of the first complete Latin Bible printed in England. The Old Testament translation is from the Hebrew and is the work of I. Tremellius and F. Junius; the Apocrypha is Junius's translation; and the New Testament is Tremellius's translation from the Syriac. In this printing the main title-page and that of the N.T. are dated 1580 but all of the sectional titles bear the date 1579. Each Testament bears a different, handsome printer's device, there having been two different printers involved in the complete Bible's production: Middleton for the O.T. and Thomas Vautrollier for the N.T. (There are four examples, in the Old Testament, of Middleton's device). The volume offers a scattering of attractive initials and head- and tailpieces. Normally the main title-page reads "impensis C.B." but in this copy it reads "impensis G.B.," (for G. Bishop) and normally the title-page of the N.T. reads "Excudebat T.V. typographus, impensis C.B." but here it reads "Excudebat Thomas Vautrollerius Typgraphus" followed by the date of 1580 in roman numerals. The variant main title is noted in revised STC as cited below and the state of the N.T. title is explained in a noted at STC 2056. Provenance: The Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released). 4to. O.T.: [8] ff., 219, [1], 299, [1], 251, [1], 390, [2], 192 pp.; N.T.: [2] ff., 191 [i.e., 195], lacking 195 (present in facsim.). STC (rev. ed.) 2056.4; Rumball-Petre 240; Darlow & Moule 6166; ISTC S121318. 20th-century brown crushed morocco in a replica Cambridge style binding in blind. Title-page cut down and mounted; last leaf of N.T. (i.e., one text page and a blank) in facsimile. Some staining. => A copy for an impoverished collector. Bookseller Inventory # 33895
