The pilgrim's progress from
this world to that which is to come

John Bunyan

Bishop Coverdale's First English Bible, quarto. Price 30s. in cloth. With a portrait and facsimile title.

This is a careful reprint of the scarce original edition of MDXXXV. in its own orthography. It is interesting not only as the first English Bible issued by royal authority, but on account of the homely simplicity with which the translation is throughout made. The following extract of a well-known passage will show the style of the rendering?

As for vs, we go all astraye (like shepe), euery one turneth his owne waye. But thorow him, the LORDE pardoneth all oure synnes. He shal be payned ! troubled, ād shal not opē his mouth. He shalbe led as a shepe to be slayne, yet shal he be as still as a lambe before the shearer, ( not open his mouth. He Bhal be had awaye, his cause not herde, and without eny iudgment: Whose generacion yet no man maye nombre, when he shalbe cut of fro the grounde of the lyvinge: Which punysh. ment shal go vpon him, for the transgression of my people. His graue shalbe genē him with the cödemned, I his crucifienge with the theues, Where as he dyd neuer violence ner varight, nether

hath there bene eny disceatfulnesse in his mouth. The sale of one entire impression of this

modern edition atteste the abiding interest of the work as a faithful translation,



This Edition of the Scriptures offers the following advantages som

I.-A Paragraph arrangement of the Texto **

II.-The publication of the Books as distinct volumos, which renders them convenient for separate perusal, --for use in travelling --for parochial visiting, and for the aged and enfeebled.

III.-A very large Type, which adapts the volumes for the obscurely lighted chamber and for weakened vision.

IV.--Completeness ; the series includes the entire Scriptures, and will bind up into four moderate volumes when the whole of the Books are publiebed.
