The Bible, that is, the Holy Scriptures conteined in the Olde and Newe Testament. London: Christopher Barker, 1599.
In his 1967 Autobiography, Reed recalls how his first ever antiquarian book purchase – a 1599 Beza New Testament “started me on the road to making a collection of early Bibles.” In 1925, Reed divided his early collection of Bibles between Knox College, Dunedin and Trinity Theological College, Auckland - the 1599 Beza forming part of the latter gift. But Reed regretted parting with it and years later, in July 1948, corresponded with the College and successfully arranged for its return in exchange for rare manuscript material. Reed donated it to the Library later that year.
