THE VINEGAR BIBLE
King James Bible : Printed by John Baskett, Oxford 1717
Presented to St.Mary’s Church, Alderley by: Thomas Croft, Rector of Alderley, 1741 – 1753
John Baskett, an Oxford printer, published an edition of the King James Bible of his own, which came to be named after him, The Baskett Bible. It was one of the most magnificent English Bibles ever printed, though marred by quite a few errors. It was dubbed The “Vinegar Bible” because, in Luke 20, the word “vineyard” was misprinted “vinegar”.
