Babel MS 1
Only one fragment, a near-complete folio, of this glossed Gospel according to John is presently known. Presumably it was originally a complete New Testament, if not a complete Bible. It would appear to have been dismantled early in the Henrician reforms towards Protestantism, probably in 1537.

History and further information
The volume in which the lone fragment survives as a pastedown provides a book printed in Augsburg in 1537 and presumably imported nearly immediately into England, as the rolls on the binding are known from examples, the last of which is from that same year.
