Geneva Bible – 1568 – EXODUS 14-16


Crossing the Red Sea



SKU: BF1568GN001 Category:


EXODUS 14:21-16:18. “Crossing the Red Sea”. Printed in Geneva by John Crispin, 1568. 2nd quarto ed., smaller than the 1560 first ed. but with all “essential parts” the same. 8.25″ x 5.5″. Reference: Herbert 130. [Three title dates were used in this otherwise identical edition: 1568, 1569, 1570. Since there are no distinguishable differences except for the date, they are all treated the same; but I have separated the 1568 leaves from the 1569 leaves, noting their title date.] Ruled-in-red. FINE- condition. Repair to lower corner, slightly torn upper corner; smudges throughout (see pics). A rare date to find. After the 1568-70 edition, the next wasn’t until the small folio of 1576 (10″ x 7″), also a very desirable date.
