1595 Geneva Bible - Christopher Barker, London
- This is a folio printing; very few editions of the Geneva Bible were printed in folio format. This example measures at 11.5" x 8" x 3.5". Margins are adequate, but not wide. Boards believed original. Note the very old strap repairs. The Bible was recently rebacked in a conservative but serviceable style. I have collated the entire book and believe it to be complete except for the original fly leaves and a map which should have been located immediately in front of the New Testament. Includes the Apocrypha. The first ten leaves have been remargined or mounted, with some loss of text. There is light to moderate soiling throughout, moreso with the first and last few gatherings of course. The last gathering or two in the "Psalmes of David in Meeter" have weak gutters, but all pages are still quite attached. Despite the faults, this is a very pleasing and readable nearly complete copy of a book that is normally found incomplete or in fragments. Herbert #225. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
