BIBLES -- BIBLIA NEERLANDICA -- BIBEL, DEN GHEHEELEN, inhoude[n]de het oude en de nieuwe Testament, met grooter naersticheyt overghestelt ende ghecorrigeert nae dat Lovensche latijnsch exemplaer. Louvain, A.M. Bergaigne, 1553. (513) lvs. Ti.p. printed within woodcut border & c. 150 woodcuts in the text, of which 1 full-p. and 1 double-p. Fol. Old (cont.?) blind tooled cf. over wooden brds. w. brass catches, new leather fasteners, last leaf (Qq8 = blank) lacks as always, ti.-p. a bit dam. and cut out and laid down clumsily, margins of first 7 lvs. dam. (in some places w. some loss of text/image), inner margin a bit stained in places, but in general in clean and good condition). Revised edition by J. van der Haghen of the authorised Dutch text of 1548 by Nicolaus van Winghe. Some of the woodcuts were used in the edition of 1548 and some are copies of woodcuts from Hans Holbein's 'Icones Historiarum veteris Testamenti' (1547). Van Liesvelt published the first Dutch edition of the Bible in 1526 but his new Testament was based on the German version of Luther and the Old Testament on the Latin Vulgate. In 1528 Vorsterman published a corrected edition, but the authorities were still not satisfied. Van Winghe was assigned to publish a new Bible, based upon J. Hentenius' edition of the Vulgate (1547). Van der Haghen's revised edition of this Bible was considered the standard Bible till the end of the century (over 17 editions were published). - Machiels, 440; Darlow & Moule, 3287; BT, 466.
