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.
