Using a Collection to Discover Reading Practices: The British Library Geneva Bibles and a History of their Early Modern Readers

2006

Abstract

This paper uses the British Library's entire collection of Geneva Bibles, dating from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, to investigate their early modern readership. A survey of both the paratextual material of the vast range of editions in the collection, and of the marks which men and women from this period have left behind, begins to reveal interactions between texts and readers.
