Bible in English.] The . holie . Bible
Richard Jugge, London 1572 - Second Folio Edition of the Bishops¿ Bible, 1572 [Bible in English.] The . holie . Bible . ¿ London: Jugge, 1572. Second Folio Edition, renowned for its double-columned Psalter containing both the 1568 Bishops¿ version and the established Coverdale version (more below). Folio signed in eights. Double column; text in Black Letter. ¿A reprint of the 1568 Bible (No 125), so far as the Old Testament is concerned; but the New Testament has undergone further careful revision since the quarto edition of 1569 (see No 126)¿ All later issues ¿ generally adopt the text of this Bible of 1572 in the New Testament¿ ¿ Herbert, p. 75. TEXT: A-O8: Pentateuch; inserted double-spread map (by Humfray Cole), ¿The moste auncient name of this lande was called Canaan¿¿ (light repair); title-page: ¿The seconde part of the Bible¿¿ = [P1]; continuous P-Z8; Aa-Kk8; Ll6; title-page: ¿The thirde part of the Bible¿¿ = [Aaa1]; Aaa-Zzz8; &&&6; (end of OT); title-page: ¿The volume of the books called Apocrypha¿¿ = [Aaaa1]; Aaaa-Mmmm8; Nnnn10 (Apocrypha ends on Nnnn9r; Nnnn9v has map: ¿The description of the holy lande¿¿; Nnnn10 is blank recto and verso with: ¿A Table to make plaine the difficultie that is founde in S. Matthew and S, Luke, touchyng the generation of Iesus Christe¿¿; New Testament title-page = [A1]; A-R8; S2 (Revelation ends on S2v); Biblical text complete. Gatherings Gg and Hh are bound out of order, and Hh 3, 4, 5, and 6 are bound out of order (Ezra-Nehemiah). Preliminaries: 24 of 26 leaves, lacking only the engraved title-page (as is often the case) and blank *8 (as always, and as intended). Leaf [capitulum] 10 is bound before [capitulum] 1-9. A ¿soft-focus¿ facsimile of the engraved title in inserted between gathering * and gathering [capitulum]. Both Herbert and Wilson give inadequate collations and descriptions of the very complicated order and signing of the preliminary leaves of the 1568 first folio and 1572 second folio printings of the Bishops¿ Bible. ¿The order of the preliminary leaves is somewhat uncertain¿ ¿ Herbert, p. 76. My collation is based on my personal note files. Some damp and toning. Some headlines touched. Marginal ink smudge on N8v. T 6, 7, and 8 in 1 Samuel are spotted. Rather heavy damp in the New Testament from Acts through Revelation. Final leaf S4 mounted. Some pentrials and the inevitable occasional small tear and/or repair. Quite nice overall. Old calf, rebacked. Bookplates of D.F. Appleton and Jonathan E. Byrd. ¿A remarkable feature of this edition is its two-version Psalter, which exhibits, printed side by side, (1) The translation used in common prayer (taken originally from the Great Bible, and still retained in the Prayer Book) in black-letter, and (2) The translation after the Hebrewes (i.e. the Bishops¿ version) in roman type¿ ¿ Herbert, p. 75. Herbert 132. DM 96. STC 2107. The Bishops' Bible was first published in 1568, but was then re-issued in arevised form in 1572. The Bible had the authority of the royal warrant, and was the second version appointed to be read aloud in church services. However, it failed to displace the Geneva Bible from its popular esteem. The version was more grandiloquent than the Geneva Bible, but was harder to understand. It was also physically enormous, with many full page illustrations - the second edition being bigger in all dimensions than either the earlier Great Bible or the subsequent Authorized Version. It lacked most of the footnotes and cross-references in the Geneva Bible which were helpful to people among whom the Bible was just beginning to circulate in the vernacular. The last edition of the complete Bible was issued in 1602, but the New Testament was reissued until at least 1617. William Fulke published several parallel editions up to 1633, with the New Testament of the Bishops' Bible alongside the Rheims New Testament, specifically to controvert the latter's polemical annotations. The Bishops' Bible or its New Testament went through over 50 editions [Attributes: Hard Cover]
