EXODUS 18:21-20:20. “The Ten Commandments” (Ch 20). Printed in London by R. Barker, 1617. 2nd 59-line LARGE FOLIO edition (counting the First Edition 1611 “He” and “She” variants as a single edition, the 72-line 1613 folio being a separate edition altogether). Reference: Herbert 353. 2 Woodcut initials! GOOD+ condition. Extensive repairs and worm holes; wrinkles to upper inner corner (see pics). Biblical text and Notes are wholly intact. The 1617 edition is nearly identical to the 1611 edition, with differences in some word spacing, spelling, and woodcut design — only an expert can distinguish the two editions! The leaves of the 1611 and 1617 editions were printed to be fully interchangeable. Census: 1611 “He”, 175 copies; 1611 “She” 450 copies; 1617, 225 copies. While the number of extant 1617 Bibles is about the same as the 1611 “He” Bibles, demand dictates price.
