Description[Bible]. Early Printed Bible Leaf.
This is a Black Letter Bible leaf from Tyndale's Version printed by R. Jugge in 1552. the first of three illustrated Editions by Jugge. This is from a Quarto edition with the leaf measuring about 5.5 x 7 inches. This contains Scripture verses from the Book of Matthew chapter 19:9 (p) to 30 and contains the well known verse of 19:26. With a large woodcut, headline partially cropped. Though Coverdale was credited with being the first to print a complete Bible in the English language, his friend William Tyndale was the first to translate the New Testament into English. It was his desire to cause the "plough boys"(laymen) to know the Scriptures and so his translation began. Though there were quite a few editions printed, few overall still are in existence as they were read to pieces and perhaps destroyed during the reign of Queen Mary. One could actually be martyred during that time for having one of his Bibles in their possession. Tyndale was martyred for his faith.
