Condition: very good - neat binding with original boards (spine renewed, back cover slightly damaged at the fore-edge); very neat and solod block; extremely neat, crisp and white pages! (part of the plates are loose as a result of the binding technique, otherwise as new!). Complete.
Note: the pictures are a bit dark, this is caused by twilight when they were taken; in reality the paper is very white!

Neat and complete copy of a rare edition of the Statenbijbel with beautiful clasps.
Keur Bibles in this format are scarce, especially with this set of prints.

Very rare set of no less than 100 (!) plates with 2 large copper engravings per plate, with wide margins. So there are 200 (!) beautiful copper engravings of approx. 16 × 11 cm.
From: Histoire de la Bible / Amsterdam, Marten Schagen

The copper engravings were probably made by master engraved Jan Luyken
They are all as new: very sharp / deep prints: great contrast, strikingly dark!
True works of art, highly detailed. The pictures provide a good impression.

Must-have book and collector's item for collectors of (picture) Bibles!

With ex-libris of A. Brom Jr. - J.A. Jacobs, anno 1912

Very thick bible with beautiful clasps.
Complete with 200 large copper engravings on 100 plates!
