Lacking title page, with general title supplied from a near contemporary edition, separate New Testament title with imprint of Francis Estienne.

The general title in this copy is supplied from another edition entirely, the octavo Biblia Sacra published in Lyon by Jean de Tournes in 1554. The New Testament title bears the imprint Francis Estienne, 1567, as found in copies of the Biblia Sacra published in Geneva by Pierre de Saint-André in 1574 and 1583, with the preliminary leaves in this copy matching those of 1574. The title appears to have been supplied at an early date, probably when the book was trimmed and rebound in the 17th century.
