Richard Jugge’s edition of Tyndale’s New Testament translation Included revisions of Tyndale’s original translation that Jugge felt brought the English translation closer to the original Greek. Jugge also included some of his own notes throughout the text, written in the margins. These footnotes were likely the first of their kind, and many scholars credit the invention of the academic-style footnote to Richard Jugge.

Printed in 1552 by Richard Jugge, London, England. Acquired by Jonathan Byrd Rare Books;[1] Purchased in 2010 by Green Collection, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; Donated in 2017 to Museum of the Bible, Washington, DC.

Notes: [1] Museum of the Bible reached out to Jonathan Byrd’s Rare Books about additional provenance information, a response was never received.
