On this particular occasion I was looking through the shelves of the typography collection which had been assembled by Edward L. Stone of Roanoke and purchased by the University upon his death. It is a wonderful collection with books that span the history of printing and as a happy accident for me a nice array of period bindings. As I was looking at the books on the shelf, I noticed a Bible Typ .B37 1717C no.2 with a label on the spine that said "Popham Family". As a fairly common practice, families used to have Bibles that were passed down through the generations, the blank pages at the front and back filled with lists of births, deaths and marriages. I had a classmate from college whose last name was Popham so the spine label caught my eye.
typos and Mr. Baskett is famous for printing an edition in which the heading for chapter 20 of Luke is printed as "parable of the vinegar" when it should be the "parable of the vineyard". This copy is not a "Vinegar Bible" but nonetheless it is a remarkable example of a printed Bible.
