(1) London [but Geneva]: Imprinted... by the Deputies of Christopher Barker; (2) Printed by W. [Stansby] for the Company of Stationers, 1589. 4to bound in 8's. (ii), 433, (4) ff; 731-739 pp, [Matthew chapters I-XI supplied from a contemporary black letter Bible], 446, (448)-465, 467-554, (82) ff.; (10), 90, (6) pp, lacking ff. 447 and 466 and 6 pages at the end. Recent full calf, spine with raised bands, gilt lettering. Woodcut general and New Testament titles. Tears across the lower corners of leaves Mm6, Oo3, Nnn8, Ooo2 and Qqq1 with a little loss of text on each occasion, a handful of leaves with short tears without loss, small marginal loss to the title page of the Psalmes, this work with repairs to increasing degrees to the edges of the final 10 leaves. A translation published in Geneva from 1560 onwards by exiled Protestants, notable for the colloquialism in Genesis III:7 ("...and they knew that they were naked, and they sowed figge tree leaves together, and made themselves breeches") that has led to the general term "Breeches Bible", although this applies to many different editions printed over many years. Bound in at the front of this volume are 50 leaves of an incomplete, and therefore unidentifiable, contemporary Book of Common Prayer, this with late 17th century manuscript annotations on the verso of the last leaf.
