The publication in 1526 of a modestly-priced pocket edition of the New Testament in English was arguably the most important single event in the history of the English Reformation. Between 1525 and 1535 Thomas Tyndale gave us the English Bible, translating the whole of the New Testament and half the Old Testament. His pocket-sized Bibles were smuggled into England, ruthlessly sought out by the Church, confiscated and destroyed. Tyndale himself was condemned as a heretic, strangled and burned outside Brussels in 1536. This volume is a complete facsimile of William Tyndale's pioneering translation of the New Testament from Greek into English, held at the British Library, and only one of the two last copies remaining in the world. The British Library produced an edition of the Tyndale Bible with original spelling but a modern typeface. It has sold over 10,000 copies and remains one of our most popular and well received titles.
