RIT CARY GRAPHIC ARTS COLLECTION
Leaf from a Baskett Bible
Baskett, John, 1666-1742
Baskett and his heirs, with their extension patents were the Bible monopolists for ninety years. Their carelessly printed editions, sometimes with 2000 errors, caused the work to be nicknamed The Basketful of Errors. A royal order in 1724 demanded impriced quality of paper, correctness of text, and a more reasonable price, to be imprinted on the title-page. Results are reflected in this Oxford edition which is almost free from the errors of earlier editions.
