Provenancebookplate Edward Dalton L.L.D. F.S.A 'inter cruces triumphans in cruce (fl1v); 'In the next year (1543) Parliament proscribed all translations bearing the name of Tyndale and required that the notes in all other copies should be removed or obliterated. At the same time it was enacted that no women (except noble or gentlewomen), no artificers, apprentices, journeymen, serving-men, husbandmen, or labourers, should read to themselves or to others, publicly or privately, any part of the Bible under pain of imprisonment. Three years later the King repeated the prohibition against Tyndale's books with may others, and includes Coverdale's New Testament in the same category. Thus the Great Bible alone remained unforbidden, and it was probably at this time that the great destruction of th earlier Bibles and Testaments took place. And even where the book has been preserved, the title page has been in many cases destroyed, that the true character of the volume might escape the observation of a ... inquisition' from Westcott's 'General View of the History of the English Bible', p. 114.

Some, which were mutilated, have been completed by hand. Inserted in this copy are two title leaves (to the second part [vol. 2] and to the Apocrypha [vol. 3]) taken from the folio Bible printed at Rouen in 1566, and a duplicate of folio 93 in part IV [vol. 4].

D. John Lewis' complete history of the several translations of the holy Bible and New Testament into English 1739, p. 107.
