The large number of Bibles printed during the 16th C confirm
that far more people than ever before could both read &
own books.
The royal licence was procured , not only for Mathew's Bible [inserted](1537)[end inserted]
but also for the 2nd 1537 ed. of Coverdale's Bible. So
now 2 versions of the Bible in English were circulating
freely in England, by formal & avowed permission
of the king, in the year after Tyndale's death.
