All pages are clean in clear "roman letter" English text, in double columns and with good margins. Each page is surrounded, and the columns are separated, by black lines. A well preserved copy of an early 17th century Geneva Bible. "There are many editions bearing this date [1599], which while agreeing closely are yet distinct. No doubt a certain number of copies were originally issued in a mixed state. The nominal date, 1599, is probably untrue in almost every case; they were apparently published at different times in Amsterdam and Dort and adopted by Barker. The phenomena of the various editions described under the year 1599, and the very similar edition of 1633, constitute one of the most curious problems of bibliography of the English Bible..." see Herbert No. 254 / Lea Wilson's No. 78 / Darlow & Moule No. 193 / STC 2178 .

The colophon and last 7 leaves have neat notes in a contemporary hand covering all blank spaces. According to Darlow & Moule this is; 'Variant B'. The idea was, in this case that the book should be bound in two volumes. The titles of the maps are:'Acra Vel Hierosolymae (Jerusalem); 'Area Templi tempore Servatoris'; 'Tubula Geographica Ad Acta Apost.' " Edited by Gergard van Maestricht, a syndic of Bremen, for H. Wettstein. (This is the second New Testament to be published by Heinrich Wetstein, his first appearing in 1698 edited by Johann Leusden). The text is printed with only one variation, from John Fell's edition of 1675, but with revised references; and a critical apparatus, based on Etienne de Corcelles and particularly of John Fell (1625-1686), bishop of Oxford... The initials G.D.T.M.D. stand for Gerhardus de Trajectu Mosae(Maestricht Doctor)..." - Referenced by Darlow & Moule 4729 (Variant B). ** Reverend George Coleridge (born 23 March 1764) was the son Reverend John Coleridge and Anne Bowden. He married Jenny Hart, daughter of Richard Hart in 1796. He died on 12 January 1828. He was a Master at Ottery Grammar School, Ottery St. Mary, Devon, England.*** Rev. John Yonge Born 4 November 1788, Pusslinch, Devon. Married Althea Henrieeta Bargus 25 March 1813. Died 1877. He was educated at Ottery Grammar School, and became rector of Newton Ferrers, Devon. He was the nephew of Rev. George Younge, and cousin of Charlotte Mary Younge. *** N.B.: The Coleridges, at Ottery St. Mary in East Devon, were connected to the Puslinch Yonges by their common descent from the Duke family. James Coleridge, the elder brother of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, had married Frances Duke Taylor, whose aunt Elizabeth Duke was grandmother to Charlotte Mary Yonge (1823-1821). (So Rev. John Yonge of Puslinch was Charlotte Mary Yonge's uncle). The children of James and Frances Coleridge (including Sir John Taylor Coleridge, Henry Nelson Coleridge, Dr James Duke Coleridge and Frances (Coleridge) Patteson), and their descendants, were thus related to Charlotte Mary Yonge . **** Full Title reads: Novum Testamentum.
