printed in England in octavo.

This was long the standard and favourite edition of the Genevan Bible, be-

1 6 1 1. With the first title engraved on copper by C. Boel of
Richmont. Folio. Lent by Henry Stevens, Esq.

This is the first or standard issue of the 1 6 1 1 version of the English Bible. There
was another separate issue of it the same year distinct throughout? every leaf.
This pair, the parents of millions of our Bibles, we shall distinguish by calling
the first the GREAT HE BIBLE, and the other the GREAT SHE BIBLE, from
their respective readings of Ruth iii. 15, the one reading "he measured six
measures of barley, and laid it on her : and HE went into the city." The
other has "and SHE went into the city." These two editions, both standard
but varying in many places, were manifestly deposited in two different printing
houses as standard copy, because the subsequent editions in quarto and octavo, in
roman and black letter, run in pairs, he and she, and as a general rule the faults
of the one follow those of its own office-copy or parent. It is not difficult for
a practical printer to point out the true original He Bible, and when that is
ascertained many other arguments fall in peacefully. This he and she distinc-
tion is only one of a thousand. The first three or four editions were issued,
some copies with an engraved copper-plate title, and others with a woodcut

bordered title, but never with both. We have found the engraved title attached
to its follower in both of the 161 1 issues, as well as that of 1613. These titles,
therefore, do not mark the edition ; nor do Speed's genealogies, with which the
king saddled and most unjustly burdened the version, as a private sop to a
favourite subject. Of the two distinct issues of 1611, some copies of each
having the engraved and others the woodcut title, it is of great consequence
to establish the priority of one or the other. Mr. Francis Fry after long and
patient investigation has, in his exceedingly important work on the subject,
pronounced decidedly in favour of the He Bible's being the original ; while Mr.
Scrivener, in the introduction to his Paragraph Bible, reverses Mr. Fry's de-
cision, and sets up the She Bible as the standard by priority. Our own
researches, both before and since Mr. Fry's opinion, have led us unequivocally
to the same conclusion as Mr. Fry. We do not find any authority for calling
it the Authorized Version, the words "Appointed to be read in Churches,
meaning not authorized, but, as explained in the preliminary matter, simply how
the Scriptures were pointed out or '* appointed " for public reading. This
" Appointment" was afterwards shunted into the Prayer-Book and left out of
the Bibles ; but why the word appointed was left on some of the early title-
pages and omitted in others, and how it got gradually to mean authorized, we
leave to philologists, simply remarking that the 1602 Bishops' Bible, on which
our present version was modelled, had both the words "authorized" and
" appointed." The Puritans and Presbyterians did not require this "appoint-
ment," and hence in many editions it was omitted. We have no objection to
the modern suppression or omission by the University and Queen's Printers of
the long Preface, the Genealogies, and the "Appointment" of Scripture Read-
ings in Churches. We could spare also the Dedication. But with all these
omissions it is difficult to understand why the title is not also purified by
leaving out the words "Appointed to be read in Churches." It being the
Bible of all churches, denominations, and congregations in Great Britain and
English-speaking America, Australia, and India (except the Roman Catholics)
as much as of the Church of England, why by this misused word, appointed,
should our common Bible any longer be even nominally limited to the Church
of England, since there never was any exclusive right in the claim. It never
was any more the Bible of the Church than of the Puritans. See Dr. Smith's
Introduction on this point. Again, it was not a new translation, but about
the twelfth revision of a work that belonged to the public, viz., (i, of Tyndale,
2, of Coverdale, 3, of Matthew, 4, of Taverner, 5, of the Great Bible of 1539,
6, of Cranmer, 7, of Becke, 8, of the Geneva New Testament, 9, of the
Genevan Bible, 10, of the Bishops' version, n, of the Bishops' version revised
in the edition of 1602, 12, this of 1611,) at once the public repository of the
English language and the birthright of Englishmen and the English-speaking
people, of America, India, and Australia. This 1611 Bible has thus become
indeed a marvel of perfection in the simplicity and beauty of its language, con-
sidering that at the time of the last revision there was neither an English
grammar nor an English dictionary in the English language.

Lent by Edward G. Allen, Esq.

This is the GREAT SHE BIBLE of 161 1, differing in every leaf from the GREAT
HE BIBLE. Like No. 1035 and 1036 it was issued, some copies with the



159

engraved and others with the woodcut title. This is certain, because we have
found both title-leaves attached to their followers. Neither title marks definitely
the edition, but there are many reasons to demonstrate that this is the second
or subsequent issue. It may have some better readings and some inferior, but
the editions are totally distinct, and unquestionably one is the parent of the
other. It was probably necessary, in order to multiply copies fast enough, to
have two standard copies in separate printing offices. The variations are
generally not of much importance, and are such as usually occur in copying
one book from another, with occasionally a slight correction, but oftener a
slight blunder.

This edition in smaller type cannot be confounded with either of the larger
folios. Some copies appeared with the 1611 engraved title, but most of them
have the woodcut title bearing the date of 1613. We have not observed in
this edition the distinction of he and she in Ruth iii. 15, but it may exist.

A recent writer, though he finds some slight variations, pronounces this and
the 1629 quarto practically the same edition, and that this one is without the
Apocrypha. He is mistaken ; the two editions are totally distinct, and vary
more than ordinary editions. His copy merely wanted the Apocrypha, as is
apparent by the first four leaves of the Apocrypha being the counterfoils of
Ccc 1-4, the last half-sheet of the Prophets. Besides, in the 1629 edition (No.
1072) there is a small * at the end of almost every sheet, a printer's mark
which we have observed in no other Bible.

The WICKED BIBLE. Title, within the woodcut border of 24 small and 4
larger oval medallions, with the royal arms on the reverse. Dedication to King
James, I p. ; " ^[ The Names and order of all the/ Bookes," in a border, I p. ;
Text in small roman type, double columns, Genesis to Revelations, A 3 to K kk
in eights. In 1855 Mr. Henry Stevens exhibited at the Royal Society of Anti-
quaries a fine and perfect copy of this long-lost, but much bescribbled-about
Bible, and at that time nick-named it " The Wicked Bible," from the fact that
the negative had been left out of the Seventh Commandment by a typographical
error. Selden and Collier, of our old writers, and many others since have failed
to name correctly the year of its publication, 1631. Four copies are now known,
one in the I^enox Library, New York, one in the British Museum, this one
from the Bodleian, and one in Glasgow. There were four octavo, roman type,
distinct editions the same year, 1631. This was suppressed, and Laud caused
a fine of ^300, with which it is said he bought a fount of Greek type for
Oxford. Mr. Scrivener in his Paragraph Bible, Introduction, page xviii gives
the date 1632, and says that a single copy is said to survive in the Library at

Wolfenbiittel. On inquiry we are informed that no such book exists there,
or as far as known ever has, but on looking into the matter, the librarian
found a German edition of just a century later with the same extraordinary
omission, which makes Germany also to boast of its "Wicked Bible." We
have not been informed that a like authority exists in France. This is no
doubt a purely typographical error, and there are some ten or twelve others in
the same sheet. It is probably the wickedest error of the kind that ever
occurred ; but we have always had great sympathy for David in his agony over
proof sheets, ever since we learned from Cotton Mather that a blundering typo-
grapher made him exclaim in a Bible printed before 1702, "Printers have
persecuted me without a cause." Psalm cxix. 161.
