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: "Antuerpiae: Ex officina Christophori Plantini. This Greek New Testament with interlinear Latin translation is a reprint from the latter half of the seventh volume in the Antwerp Polyglot. The editor, Benedictus Arias, one of the most learned scholars of his time, was called from his retirement by Philip II of Spain to supervise the work, and to obtain papal sanction for its sale. The text clearly follows that of the Complutensian Polyglot issued in 1514-17. The Greek characters were cut by Robert Granjon, the famous type designer of Lyons. (Darlow and Moule 4645)"
