Title: 
Leaf from a Matthew Bible
Creator: 
Daye, John, 1522-1584
Summary: 
The Second version of the English Bible, edited by John Rogers, who wrote under the pseudonym of Thomas Matthew, either in fear of his life or to conceal the fact that a considerable part of this Bible was from the condemned translation of Tyndale. This edition is also known as the "Becke Bible," on account of the dedication by Edmund Becke; the "Indecent Bible," because of many objectionable notes; and the "Wife Beating Bible," from a note "to beate the fear of God into her heade."
