The text of the Nevv Testament of Iesus Christ, 
translated out of the vulgar Latine by the papists of the traiterous seminarie at Rhemes. With arguments of bookes, chapters, and annotations, pretending to discouer the corruptions of diuers translations, and to cleare the controuersies of these dayes. Whereunto is added the translation out of the original Greeke, commonly vsed in the Church of England, with a confutation of all such arguments, glosses, and annotations, as conteine manifest impietie, of heresie, treason, and slander, against the Catholike church of God, and the true teachers thereof, or the translations vused in the Church of England. The whole worke, perused and enlarged in diuers places by the authors owne hand before his death, with sundry quotations, and authorities out of holy scriptures, counsels, fathers, and history. More amply than in the former edition. By W. Fulke D. in diuinite.


This edition presents the Douai-Rheims version and the Bishops’ Bible version of the New Testament in parallel columns, with confutation of comments made in the Douai-Rheims version by Puritan divine William Fulke (1538-1589) at end of each chapter.


Early 17th century Oxford binding of blind tooled calf. Central panel filled with a narrow, plain vertical strip surrounded by a blind tooled roll (see Strickland Gibson, Early Oxford Bindings, Plate XXXIX, no. XVIII), which is itself surrounded by another roll -- the outer roll incorporates the initials GK (see Oldham, English Blind-Stamped Bindings, MW.a(1) and Gibson, Early Oxford Bindings, Plate XXXVIII, no. XII). This roll was in use in Oxford in the early part of the 17th century, and was used by more than one binder (Edward Miles and Dominique Pinart are both associated with the GK roll. The combination of rolls XVIII and XII may point to this being the work of Pinart rather than Miles - see Gibson, Early Oxford Bindings). An outer frame is comprised of the same two rolls as in the central panel. The spine has five raised bands and an upper and lower 'band' formed of blind-tooled hatching. Bookblock edges coloured red. Evidence of ties. The pastedowns are formed of printed binder's waste -- pages 77, 84, 85, 92, 189, 196, 197, 204, of Beccaria, Giovanni, Refutatio cuiusdam libelli sine auctore cui titulus est, de iure magistratuum in subditos, et officio subditorum erga magistratus, (S.l., s.n., 1604) (VD17 12:106636H)
