One of the very earliest printed octavo Bibles, as handy for travel as the popular “pocket bibles” of the 13th century. Reference: Goff B598; GW 4275. Ruled in Red. With 4 hand-painted initials in RED and BLUE. FINE condition; small hole at bottom two lines; light smudge on recto (see pics). COA on premium “gold leaf” paper with gold seal and signature.
