CARY GRAPHIC ARTS COLLECTION
Leaf from a Bishops' Bible
First small folio edition of the Bishops' Bible, so called from the fact that eight bishops, under the direction of Archbishop Parker of Canterbury, were among the reviewers. The work of the bishops is of unequal merit, as they all were pioneers and worked independently with little editorial supervision. This version was never very popular, and only nineteen edition seem to have been printed. Some of the marginal notes in the Bishops' Bible are curious. Opposite Psalm xlv. 9, we find: Ophir is thought to be the Ilande in the west coast, of late founded by Christopher Columbo, from whence at this day is brought most fine gold.
