The limitations T. Larque mentions regarding this CD are illustrative of
the problem of *The* Geneva Bible. The marginalia and the varied
apparatus of each volume/edition make articulation of a/the Geneva Bible
difficult. For those with serious interest let me suggest the following.

Eason, Charles. The Genevan Bible. Notes on Its Production and
Distribution. Dublin: Eason and Son, 1937.

Greaves, Richard L. "The Nature and Intellectual Milieu of the Political
Principles in the Geneva Bible Marginalia." Journal of Church and State.
22 (Spring 1980): 233-249

And for those incarcerated or marooned:

Lupton, Lewis. A History of the Geneva Bible. 25 vols. London:
Fauconberg Press, 1966.

I have had *some* success pasting an entire work into a Word document
for similar purposes.

All the best,
R.A. Cantrell
