Wycliffe New Testament Facsimile
1378 Wycliffe NT: First Printed Edition (1731)

This 1731 publication of Wycliffe's circa 1378 translation of the scripture in English is the first printed edition of the first English translation of God's Word! It is an extremely important milestone in printing history, and Biblical history. Only 160 copies of this book were printed in 1731, and fewer than 10 of them are known to exist today. They are valued at close to $100,000 each. You can own a beautiful copy of the first printed edition of the first English translation of the scriptures for a tiny fraction of that cost.

Wycliffe New Testament Facsimile
1519 Erasmus Greek & Latin New Testament

The publication of Erasmus's New Testament was a landmark in the critical study of Scripture and was the epitome of this remarkable scholar's desire for a return to the sources of the Christian tradition. Its production and legacy illuminate the intellectual climate of Western Europe and the growth of a new type of Biblical scholarship based upon true scholarship methods. The edition consisted of the original Greek text and a new translation into classical Latin arranged in parallel columns.

1536 Tyndale New Testament Facsimile
1536 Tyndale New Testament

William Tyndale produced the very first English language New Testament to ever come off a printing press. He was burned at the stake in 1536 for the “crime” of printing these magnificently Illustrated English New Testaments. This 1536 edition was the last and most elaborate one done prior to his death. The woodcut illustrations are simply breathtaking. The calligraphy-like Gothic Blackletter Typeface is also a work of art. William Tyndale is called “The Architect of the English Language” that we now speak.
