This copy of the Bishops’ Bible is a small folio edition published in London in 1584. Though missing a few preliminary pages, it is an excellent example of a Bible used in Church of England pulpits in the 16th century, printed less than 20 years after the first edition in 1568. Bound into the front of the volume is a 17th century Book of Common Prayer. It is interesting to note that this copy was at one time in the collection of the Edinburgh Public Library in Scotland.
