Description

PSALMS 132:18-137:4. “God’s Steadfast Love”. FIRST EDITION. Known as The Great “She” Bible, the “Queen” of 1611 Bibles. First editorial correction of the original, uncorrected “He” variant, differing chiefly in obscure spellings, word spacing and woodcuts. Census about 175 “He” and 450 “She” Bibles extant. Printed in 1611 (and immediately thereafter) and published 1611-1613, in London, by Robert Barker, according to extant title pages. Experts disagree whether the “He” and the “She” should count as a single edition with two variants, or as two distinct editions. Reference: Herbert 319. All 59-line folio leaves (1611 He, 1611 She, 1617, 1634, 1640) are interchangeable, so buyer beware. Nonetheless, each leaf can be determined with certainty.

FINE+ condition with wide margins, 16.0″ x 10.5″. Light stains to outer margin and corner. With 6 WOODCUT initials, 1 inhabited Ps 137 “B”. Psalm 138 is mis-numbered as 137 (noted in margin). These Psalms extol God’s “steadfast love” for Israel even in the midst of Exile. COA on premium “gold leaf” paper w. signature and seal. Leaf and COA set in a museum-quality Archival Booklet with archival sleeves. Includes Priority Shipping.
