An exceedingly rare 16th-century Geneva Bible compete with Old and New Testaments, Grashop’s Bible Chart, and The Address to the Christian Reader. The Geneva version was translated into English by William Whittingham, Anthony Gilby, and Thomas Sampson. This 1594 printing is exceedingly rare and is printed in double-column, black letter type with verse numbers (The Geneva Bible was the first English Bible to use verse numbers). Each page is filled with references and notes in the margins.

 

Even after the 1611 King James English Bible was published, the Geneva Bible would still be popular edition of the Puritans into the mid-17th-century.

 

The Church of England did not recognize the Geneva Bible as canon and thus had no official status in the English Church; however, all readers of the Geneva Bible were given aid in understanding scripture through the help of T. Grashop’s Bible Chart which advises the reader on how to approach the biblical text. This edition, like other Barker versions, includes the additions of R.F. Herrey and Grashop.
