2nd KINGS 11:19-13:19. “Joash’s Reform”. FIRST EDITION. Great “She” Bible variant. Printed in 1611, published/titled 1611-1613, in London, by Robert Barker. Herbert 319. This leaf, being the printer’s first “correction” (spelling, spacing, and woodcut variations) already in 1611 extending to 1612 and possibly into 1613, is slightly distinct from the initial 1611 “He” variant, and distinct from all other 59-line folio edition. FINE+ condition (see pics); with 2 HISTORIATED WOODCUT initials (rate that 2 such initials appear together apart from a title page). 15.4″ x 10.0″. COA on premium “gold leaf” paper w. signature and seal. Leaf and COA set in an Archival Booklet. This semi-premium text (due to the unusual woodcuts) recounts king Josiah’s [Jehoash] dedication of the Temple and brief reign by capitulating to the king of Syria.
