"2 colums, last black-letter quarto edn. to be printed by Barker. Woodcut borders to both titles. 1615. Bound with Common prayer, title (which is so often missing) within woodcut border, Calendar in red and black. 1614. Speed's woodcut Genealogies and double-page map. R.F. Herrey's Two right profitable and fruitfull concordances. 1615. Sternhold and Hopkin's Psalmes (2pp. soiled) 1616. 5 items in 1 vol., thick 4t0, contemporary calf, worn and amateurly repaired, lacks clasps. Although somewhat worn, this volume is in unsophiticated and not unattractive state. D & M give two editions black-letter 1615, with two tests by which to differentiate them. This Bible has one from each. As the binding is undisturbed I don't think it has been made up with a title from a different copy. It seems probable to me that the variant readings were bound up as they happened to come from the press. This is therefore D.M. 264/5"--Bookseller's description (laid in)
