Bible of the Pilgrims and Puritans

This is an origional leaf (page) from The Bible that is The Holy Scriptures, printed by Robert Barker at London England in 1615. Quartro, double columns of Roman Letter English language text with Roman Letter sidenotes. The Geneva-Tomson-Junius version

The final Roman Letter quartro edition of the Geneva Bible to be printed by the King's Official Printer.  This widely read translation was the work of reformers who had fled to Geneva to escape persecution in England during the reign of Queen Mary (Bloody Mary), and was highly influential for a hundred years, the textus receptus for the Puritan England. In fierce copetition with the Bishops' Bible (1568) and the later King James Edition (1611).
