Three parts in one volume, 8° (178 x 115mm). Half-title, engraved title by Cornelis Claessen Duysend. (Small wormholes towards lower margin of some leaves occasionally affect text, a few other small tears, mostly marginal, a few repaired, final gathering loose, some leaves browned or slightly soiled.) Contemporary calf (rebacked and recornered, scuffed), slip-case. Provenance: some notes on half-title and endpapers in German and Polish.
The extremely rare revised edition of the complete Bible, the first to be acceptable to all Evangelical Poles, translated by D. Mikoajewski and J. Turnowski, which was seized and burnt on the order of the Archbishop of Gnesen, who found the error in Matthew iv.1, 'do' for 'od'. This superceded the Brest Bible of 1563 encouraged and financed by Nicolas Radziwi which had not been acceptable to all Polish Protestants. Some copies contain an additional engraved title and Rybinski's translation of the Psalms, neither present in this copy. Darlow & Moule 7392.
