The New Testament 1526 edition translated by William Tyndale
William Tyndale believed the Bible should be available in the vernacular — the common people’s speech. He famously declared, “The boy that driveth the plough shall know more of the Scripture than [an educated man].”
Though forbidden by the church to translate the New Testament into English, Tyndale’s determination resulted in its finally being printed in Germany in 1526. Smuggled into England, the Tyndale New Testament was a great success. This is, in part, because of its simple, direct language, which has resonated throughout the centuries.
Bible collectors and those interested in the history of the English Bible will treasure this unique volume. This is a facsimile of one of only two complete copies from Peter Schoeffer’s 1526 printing, held in the British Library’s collection. It features clear, legible type and original, color illustrations.
