Cover of a Puritan's attempt to refute the Douay-Rheims Bible by printing it side-by-side with the Protestant 'Bishops' Bible', which ironically promoted the DR's popularity in England. It says:'The Text of the New Testament of Jesus Christ, translated out of the vulgar Latin by the Papists of the traitorous seminary at Rheims, with arguments of Books, Chapters, and Annotations, pretending to discover the corruptions of divers' translations, and to clear the controversies of these days, whereinto is added the Translation out of the original Greek, commonly used in the Church of England, with a confutation of all such arguments, glosses, and annotations, as containing manifest impiety, of heresy, treason, and slander, against the Catholick Church of God [my note: for them, the Church of England], and the true teachers thereof, or the Translations used in the Church of England: both by authority of the holy Scriptures, and by the testimony of the ancient fathers.'
