Brief Description

[Printed in London]. The first edition of the Geneva was published in 1560 in Europe by English Reformationists who had fled there from England. This version was the Bible of the Puritans and the Pilgrims. This Roman letter copy is a quarto printing with a 19th century binding. The Apocrypha is not bound in this copy, indicating the likelihood of a Puritan owner, who didn’t believe the Apocrypha was the Word of God. Also bound in the volume is a 1594 Psalter.
