1535 Facsimile Coverdale Bible by Coverdale - Original Size -1st edition


  • Miles Coverdale worked with William Tyndale on his translation of the Bible. William Tyndale translated Genesis through Second Chronicles, as well as the New Testament, working directly from the Hebrew and Greek texts. After Tyndale was martyred, Coverdale, along with John “Thomas Matthew” Rogers and several other translators, continued and accelerated Tyndale’s work of translating the whole Bible. From 1528 to 1535, Coverdale labored to finish his compilation of the Old Testament. In 1535 the Coverdale Bible, the first complete printed English Bible, was published.
