1538 Coverdale 1st Diglot Bible Leaf/rare/gospel Of Matthew/woodcuts For Sale
1538 Coverdale 1ST DIGLOT Bible Leaf/RARE/GOSPEL OF MATTHEW/WOODCUTS!
This is one of my favorite verses in all of Scripture, one I like to think of as a "nugget"! It makes all of life's difficulties worth going through (see Psalms 34:19)! This is an authentic Bible leaf from the FIRST edition of Coverdale's Diglot Testament. This leaf contains the GOSPEL OF MATTHEW 14-15 (partial) WITH TWO WOODCUTS! The Folder shown (with another leaf for display only) is available but not included. Printed in Southwarke by James Nicolson MCCCCCXXXVIII. Will come with a Certificate of Authenticity. This contains Scripture text from the New Testament in both Latin and English each corresponding to the other after the Vulgare text, commonly called S. Jeroms. The Latin text is in Roman Letter and the English text is in Black Letter. The Coverdale New Testaments are even scarcer than the Tyndale New Testaments. To be able to purchase a leaf from this edition is a rare opportunity indeed. I am aware of a few other Coverdale leaves (1535 Coverdale first edition leaves) available anywhere at any price and priced at well over $1000.00 just for a random Old Testament leaf. The leaf measures about 5 1/2" X 7 1/2" has a corner repair and will come with a Certificate of Authenticity. Miles Coverdale(spelled Myles then), 1487-1569, is not as well known today among Evangelical Christians as some of the Spiritual Giants of time past, but he was responsible for successfully spreading Gods Truth throughout Europe in his day. Friends with Tyndale, he realized that the Bible must first be put into the languange of the day in order for a great work of revival to begin. He was the FIRST to produce an English translation of the complete Bible from the original languages.
