    It's a bit pricier than I can afford but for those interested there is a small testament in Latin translated by Theodore Beza,
    on EBay.

    1633 NEW TESTAMENT by Theodore Beza

    Beza's Greek and Latin versions were used in the making of the King James version.

    Beza's versions are noted for the copious notes he included beside the text, these can be seen in the pictures provided on the link.

    "Beza may have availed himself of the help of two very valuable manuscripts.
    One is known as the Codex Bezae or Cantabrigensis, and was later presented by Beza to the University of Cambridge; the second is the Codex Claromontanus, which Beza had found in Clermont (now in the National Library at Paris)."
