The picture bible of Mortier, ‘Historie des Ouden en Nieuwen Testaments, verrykt met meer dan vierhonderd printverbeeldingen’, was published in two volumes by the Amsterdam publisher Pieter Mortier in 1700. For this publication, he had drawings made by artists who were well-known at the time, such as B. Picart, J. Luyken and G. Hoet. The explanatory text for the prints was written by the Walloon minister David Martin.

The picture bible contains 428 prints on 214 numbered leaves, so each page contains two prints. Next to the pages is a page with a description of the relevant bible story. In addition to the prints, the picture bible is illustrated with 2 title engravings, 5 maps and 29 oval vignettes. Besides the beautiful world map, the 5 maps depict paradise, the desert journey, the Holy Land and Paul's travels.

Volume 1: Amsterdam: Pieter Mortier, 1700. folio (frontispiece, 16) 282 (8) pp. Re-bound in original leather binding with new endpapers. The spine has been restored (one joint is partly torn). The paper is of excellent high-quality. The bookblock has a moisture stain at the top with discolouration / stains. This volume has 141 / 214 numbered leaves with prints.

Volume 2: Amsterdam: Pieter Mortier, 1700. folio (frontispiece, 24) 163 (11) pp. Re-bound in original leather binding with new endpapers. The spine is restored at the top. The book block is moisture-stained in front and back. The ‘Algemeene Bladwyzer’ pages are weak around the edges. The last print is undamaged, the printing plate was later broken (cf. Poortman, Bijbel en Prent, deel IIa, p. 99).
