Abstract: This image is from a collection created by Etta Hanson and given to the College in 1954. All items are from Otto Ege's estate. The leaf was contained and mounted in a mat created by Otto Ege, as were all other leaves in this collection. There is a typed description at the bottom of the mat, which reads: "Imprinted at London by Richarde Iugge Printer to the Queenes Maiestie. First small folio edition of the Bishops’ Bible, so called from the fact that eight bishops, under the direction of Archbishop Parker of Canterbury, were among the reviewers. The work of the bishops is of unequal merit, as they all were pioneers and worked independently with little editorial supervision. This version was ever very popular, and only nineteen editions seem to have been printed. Some of the marginal notes in the Bishops’ Bible are curious. Opposite Pslam xlv. 9, we find: “Ophir is thought to be the Ilande in the west coast, of late found by Christopher Columbo, from whence at this day is brought most fine golde.” (Darlow and Moule 103)"
