Footnotes

  • WILLIAM TYNDALE'S VERSION, the second quarto edition of Jugge's revision. Edward VI's accession was marked by a revival of evangelical reform in England, and after a royal injunction in 1547 every parish church in England was compelled to purchase a vernacular Bible. This edition was published in the last year of Edward's reign.

    Provenance: Rev. Samuel John Thorpe (1865-1936), Baptist Minister; thence by descent to the present owner, a Devon clergyman, with presentation label date 1946 on front pastedown.
