Early Books at the Beinecke: From the Curator's Desk

An English pocket Bible in Latin arrived this past fall in the Beinecke's collections.  The Bible shows many signs of use, including numerous marginal notes and it contains a separate book to aid the reader, the Interpretation of Hebrew Names, a detail of which is shown here. Given its portability and scholarly use, it was likely owned by a Dominican or Franciscan preacher, but only further research with answer such questions.  This book has been in private hands and not available for academic study until now.
