The 1585 Bishops’ Bible Folio
[Bible in English.] The Holy Byble, conteining … Authorized and appointed to be read in Churches. Imprinted at London by Christopher Barker… Anno. 1585.
The only edition after the 1572 Second Edition to contain the original 1568 Bishop’s Psalter.
This edition, and the smaller folio of 1584, were printed and distributed at the insistence of Archbishop Whitgift to be installed in parish churches. The third folio edition of the Bishops’ (1574) declares on the title-page: “Set foorth by aucthoritie.” This declaration strengthens through subsequent editions: 1584, “authorized to be read in churches” –and in 1585 (copy at hand), “Authorised and appointed to be read in Churches.”
In a modern full calf binding by Starr Bookworks of Arizona.
