The imprint and 1599 date are probably false: actual printer's name and place as conjectured by STC 2175(1986 edn.) and Herbert 248 (with which this copy mostly coincides - eg. "seven and twen-/ty provinces" in Esther I, 1). "Geneva" Bibles dated 1599 were actually printed in Amsterdam and Dort during the early 1600's for English people who wanted a Puritan alternative to the King James Bible.
