A well preserved copy of an early 17th century Geneva Bible. "There are many editions bearing this date [1599], which while agreeing closely are yet distinct. No doubt a certain number of copies were originally issued in a mixed state. The nominal date, 1599, is probably untrue in almost every case; they were apparently published at different times in Amsterdam and Dort and adopted by Barker. The phenomena of the various editions described under the year 1599, and the very similar edition of 1633, constitute one of the most curious problems of bibliography of the English Bible..." see Herbert No. 254 / Lea Wilson's No. 78 / Darlow & Moule No. 193 / STC 2178 . .
