BIBLE, in English, Geneva version The Bible, Translated According to the Ebrew and Greeke, black letter.[Deputies of Christopher Barker, 1594]; Two Right Profitable and Fruitfuall Concordances... Collected by R.F.H., woodcut device on title, Deputies of Christopher Barker, [n.d.], The Whole Book of Psalmes. Collected into English Meetre, woodcut device on title, John Windet for the Assisgnes of Richard Daye, 1594, 3 works bound in one vol.

The Geneva Bible is one of the most historically significant translations of the Bible into the English language, preceding the King James translation by 51 years. It was the primary Bible of 16th century Protestantism and was the Bible used by William Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell, John Knox, John Donne, and John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim's Progress. It was one of the Bibles taken to America on the Mayflower, it was used by many English Dissenters, and it was still respected by Oliver Cromwell's soldiers at the time of the English Civil War.

This version of the Holy Bible is significant because, for the very first time, a mechanically printed, mass-produced Bible was made available directly to the general public which came with a variety of scriptural study guides and aids (collectively called an apparatus), which included verse citations which allow the reader to cross-reference one verse with numerous relevant verses in the rest of the Bible, introductions to each book of the Bible which acted to summarize all of the material that each book would cover, maps, tables, woodcut illustrations, indexes, as well as other included features — all of which would eventually lead to the reputation of the Geneva Bible as history's very first study Bible.

Because the language of the Geneva Bible was more forceful and vigorous, most readers preferred this version strongly over the Great Bible. In the words of Cleland Boyd McAfee, "it drove the Great Bible off the field by sheer power of excellence"

General and New Testament titles within woodcut border (general title with piece of upper border torn away), lacks 2 leaves of Matthew (Chapt. 1 and 2, replaced with leaf from another black letter Bible), 3 leaves with corner touching text torn away, early ownership inscriptions on blank verso of final leaf of Apocrypha and NT title, some soiling and heavy darkening to the edges of most pages. Last leaf of the book is saved but most of the margins and some of th text is gone. Burn mark as pictured on 2 leaves.Later blindstamped calf, rebacked rubbed and worn on the edges.
