1495 Geneva Bible ?? Rare Misprinted Title Page
- The date 1495 is a most interesting mistake and, though a mistake, is quite collectable. No other Bible in English has a proper printed date prior to 1500. Many copies of this printing have had the NT title removed, often for framing. The general title (not present in this copy). was dated, correctly, 1594. This is Herbert's # 219. The Bible remains a survivor, nicely rebound c1820 in plain marbled leather, the spine with gilt rule and titling. Bible measures approximately 9" x 6.5". The interior retains the engraved title page for the New Testament, although missing the New Testament as well as the book of common prayer preceding it and the whole book of Psalms at the rear as well. Text in English Black Letter with various initials and printers devices throughout. Bible begins with a fragment of the Book of Common Prayer, starting on leaf C, missing all before, but remaining complete afterwards. The Bible is printed in Black letter font in English, two columns with frequent notes and marginal commentary, as well as great woodcut devices. End of the book contains what appears to be a family history (Gattersall?) [Attributes: Hard Cover]
