LONDON: Imprinted by Christopher Barker, Printer to the Queens most excellent Maiestie. 1599. (Published date 1599). Cum gratia & priuilegio. Thick 4to. 9" x 7" Inches (LxB). There are 3 title pages present,all three are dated 1599, the colophon is also dated 1599; the Old Testament & the New Testament printed within decorative woodcut border. The general letter press title page also present & dated 1599. Geneva version. Apocrypha present, text printed in black letter (Herbert 248). Numerous woodcut illustrations throughout + maps. Double columns with 72 lines to the full column. Arguments, marginal notes, etc. in roman type. Fine modern full paneled calf leather binding in antique style, using fine calf leather; spine with 5 raised bands, 2 red & green gilt lettered morocco labels. Corresponds with the first of the 1599 quarto bindings produced by Barker. According to Pocock, this is probably the earliest printing of the 1599 edition, as it abounds more than any other in gross errors: e. g. Song of Solomon v. 3 - defile for put; Issiah xxx, 32 - boards for harps; xxxvi. 12 - doung for dung.

The "Breeches Bible": A Geneva edition mistranslated Genesis 3:7 as "and they sewed figge leaves together and made themselves breeches."

Hence Called the "Breeches" Bible since.

The Geneva or Breeches Bible was imprinted at London by Christopher Barker. Edited by religious refugees in Geneva during the reign of Bloody Mary, this was the Bible of the Puritans. The use of the term breeches in Genesis iii, where the Authorised Version has aprons, gives this version its name. First published in 1560, the Geneva Bible is often called the "Breeches Bible" for its unique rendering of Genesis 3:7. A rare early 16th century collectors item in English. [Darlow & Moule/Herbert 248]. A classic work. There are numerous close-up pictures of the contents given below; please click on them for a detailed description (See Scans below). Please take some time to view the 50+ pictures in detail, in order to gain a full idea of the contents and condition.

Christopher Barker was an outstanding figure in the printing trade toward the end of the sixteenth century, a wealthy member of the Drapre's Company and a shrewd business man who managed to acquire the most lucrative of all patents for a man with sufficient capital to exploit it - namely the Bible patent. He became a publisher around 1569 and took his device the Tiger's head, badge of the Walsingham family, with which he was closely connected. Although in August 1577 Christopher Barker had been one of the stationers who signed the petition against privileges (see Landsdowne, MS, 48) this did not prevent him from obtaining a patent (Patent Roll, 19El12, Pat. 8) which granted him the office of Royal printer of all statutes, books, bills, Acts of Parliament, proclamations, injunctions, Bibles, and New Testaments... Also of all service books to be used in churches, and all other volumes ordered to be printed by the Queen or Parliament. He had already shown his business acumen in obtaining a privledge for printing the Geneva Bible, of which he and his assigns and deputies had brought out more than fifty editions between 1576 and 1600. ...it is doubtful if he was ever a working printer, any more than was Christopher Barker. They held their patents by purchase and were employers of labour to exploit that patent. Christopher Barker, the Queen's Printer, had the Bible, the book of Common Prayer, Acts of Parliament and Royal Proclamations.
