1539 or 1540
This leaf from the Great Bible, the first English Bible authorized for public use, is from a first edition published in 1539 or 1540. The large portfolio format led to this version being described as the “great” Bible, and thus its name. The text on this leaf is from Job 22:1 to 24:20.
