The Dunham Bible Museum's special exhibit "From Geneva: The First English Study Bible" marks the 450th anniversary of the Geneva Bible. Also known as the Breeches Bible, the Geneva Bible was the first English study Bible, the Bible most used by Shakespeare, and the Bible brought to America by many of the early settlers at Jamestown and Plymouth.  The Geneva Bible was also consistently consulted by the translators of the King James Bible, in spite of King James' disdain for those Geneva notes.
