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: "Imprynted at London in Fletestrete at the signe of the Sunne over agaynst the conduyte by Edwarde Whitchurche A revision by Coverdale of Matthew’s Bible under the patronage of Thomas Cromwell; hence sometimes knowns as “Cromwell’s Bible”.
