Since it's Sunday, let's talk Bibles...

When I was born, I was given an OLD OLD bible. It's written in Hebrew, with a Latin preface. On the frontace page, which is all illumnitated and beautiful, the date is 1603. Inside, on a page that seems to list the typesetter/publisher, the date is 1588. I'm not sure which is accurate, but I find it funny that the earlier date is 400 years before I left California, and the later date is 400 years after I came back. ::Dun dun DUNNNNNNN!::

Anyway, if you want to see a couple digital pictures I took of the preface:



The images are good sized, so they may be slow to download.
