La Bibia, che si chiama Il vecchio Testamento, nuouamente tradutto in lingua volgare secondo la verità del testo Hebreo ... Quanto al nuouo Testamento è stato riueduto e ricorretto secondo la verità del testo Greco....
A much revised edition of Brucioli's Old Testament married to Massimo Teofilo's New Testament, printed for the Genevan Protestant refugees and meant to be spirited into Italy for the crypto-Protestants. Darlow and Moule note that "this edition closely resembles certain contemporary French and English Bibles printed at Geneva. The woodcuts are the same as those in the French Bible of 1560 printed by Antoine Rebul . . . , and the type is that of the English Geneva Bible of 1560." Of the two variations described in Darlow and Moule, this copy is variant A, meaning that the N.T. has marginal notes similar to those of the rest of the text; Darlow and Moule also tell us that "[t]his revision. . . has been ascribed to Filippo Rusticio, or Rustico." The work offers a handsome printer's device on its title-page, along with => a variety of in-text woodcuts, all located in the Old Testament, and a folding plate, "La forma de la restauration del Tempio"; the title-page, illustrated folding plate, and a woodcut in Genesis in this copy are old facsimiles. At the end of the edition's O.T. is a two-page commentary on "Lo stato dei giudei sotto la monarchia dei Romani," i.e., the state of the Jews in [ancient] Rome. Provenance: Pencilled ownership inscription of William Izod Mosley dated 23 February 1777 on final leaf of text. Later in the Howell Bible Collection, Pacific School of Religion (properly released).
