Hendrickson's facsimile edition of Tyndale's 1526 New Testament is a lovely little book. When I first got it I had a few doubts because it doesn't have the feel of a true facsimile - instead of being made to feel like an exact reproduction of the original book, you have a book of photographed images of the original pages.

I loved reading this translation that predated the KJV by 75 years. The spelling definitely differs and so did the wording, but the size of the print and the books format definitely made it a pleasant experience.
