Abstract: This image is from a collection created by Etta Hanson and given to the College in 1954. All items are from Otto Ege's estate. The leaf was contained and mounted in a mat created by Otto Ege, as were all other leaves in this collection. There is a typed description at the bottom of the mat, which reads: "Ex officina Christophori Plantini. The Louvain Bible, edited by Johannes Hentenius, —practically a reprint of R. Stephanus; Bible of 1538-40—was published by Christopher Plaintin with the Summa Privilegii of King Phillip of Spain. At the time this Bible was being printed, Plantin was issuing not only Bibles, but also popular literature in ten languages: Latin, Greek, Hebrew, French German, Spanish Italian, Flemish, Dutch, and English. The polyglot staff of editors and compositors were forbidden, by posted notices, to discuss religious questions; probably because Plantin had been caused several times of being a heretic. Later, however, Plantin was appointed censor of the press. Founded in 1555, this famous press was suspended in 1867, where upon the city of Antwerp converted it into a museum. "
