JOHN 1:34-3:35. “For God so loved the worlde . . .” (3:16). FIRST EDITION. Printed in Geneva by Rouland Hall, 1560. Translated by W. Whittingham, et.al. Reference: Herbert 107. The earliest English Bible printed [both] in Roman type and with verse divisions. FINE condition; headlines partly shaved; general light soiling (see pics). COA on premium “gold leaf” paper w. gold seal. Leaf is exceedingly rare! Just once in 13 years have I seen a genuine 1560 leaf offered — there have been many claimants, however.
In this leaf, John proclaims the love of God in Christ, in words beloved by nearly all Christians. One of the premier leaves in the New Testament. Exceedingly rare.
Original Leaf and COA set in a museum-quality Bifold Portfolio. Facsimile of 1560 title page included.
