Status: Needs Review

In the first printed French Bible the text of the 13th C
was adapted. It was edited by Julian Macho & Peter
Farget & published at Lyons in 1477. A later one printed
by Verard is undated. It embodied a revision made by
John de Rely, confessor to Charles VIII. The book was
probably printed about 1498 when the press of Verard was
still located at the address "Sur le pont nostre dame."
