This auction is for a rare Tyndale New Testament printed by R. Jugge in 1553. This is the second quarto edition revised by Richard Jugge. Entirely complete Tyndale editions offered publicly are exceptionally rare(and not offered often, period) and this one is lacking the following: all before B1(signature A), beginning at Matthew 6:23( including the 18 preliminary leaves missing), also lacking P1. The first four leaves have been repaired with text loss. N4 repaired with lower loss of Woodcut, 2B8 repaired with bottom right corner loss. Also lacks the second part title with the title to Romans repaired with major loss and finally there are a series of leaves with lower marginal repair with no loss of the Scripture text. There is some soiling and dampstaining and a small amount of worming at the rear of the Bible(the browning can be cleaned completely for a binders fee if desired, leaving clean pages). There are nice margins for the most part throughout. Many Woodcuts in the Gospels with many Woodcut title pages and a series of Woodcuts in Revelation(approximately 100 total). Please note the fourth scan from the bottom with Jugges device and Imprint, it reads: "Love Kepyth the Lawe, Obeyeth the Kynge, and is Good to the Commen Welthe". The binding appears to have 17th Century boards(small loss and some rubbing) with blindstamped panel designs, corner stamps and marbled endpapers. A recent reback gives it a handsome shelf appearance. Tyndale copies are found in worse condition(lacking more than this one) with poor headlines(see last scan for example-this is from another poorer edition). If more information is needed, please contact me. I WILL CONSIDER A REASONABLE OFFER FOR THIS EDITION, PLEASE CONTACT ME. Rare/Religion/Theology.
