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: "Basel: T. Guarinus. The earliest edition of the complete Bible in Spanish. It was translated by C. de Reina, a monk who, becoming one of the Spanish Reformers, had to flee to England, and later to the Continent. A copy was sent to Queen Elizabeth with a letter stating that the translator would have liked to publish the work under her auspices. The edition consisted of 2,600 copies, but so many disappeared that they were scarce De Valera brought out the second Spanish Bible in 1602. It is also known as the “Bear” Bible from the device on the title page. (Darlow and Moule 8472)"
