The original Geneva Bible (1560) in PDF
The Geneva Bible was called the "study bible" because of the inclusion of material that aids studying it e.g. indexes, maps, tables and various other features.
This Bible was made during the reign of Queen Mary I (England). It was one of the Bibles brought to America on the Mayflower and it was used by famous people such as Shakespeare, Oliver Cromwell and John Milton.
This was the first mechanically printed Bible. The edition that we have here is the first full version that was printed in 1560.
