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 Hebrew Old Testament, with interlinear Latin translation, is a reprint from the second half of volume seven in the Antwerp Polyglot. The Hebrew text is taken from the Complutensian Polyglot, with an interlinear Latin translation— a revision of Sanctes Pagninus’ version. For his printing of impressive and scholarly Bibles, Plantin was appointed Prototypograph, or ruler over the printers in the city Antwep, by Phillip II of Spain. The King also secured for him a license from the Holy See, which soon brought a fortune to Plantin and his successors. (Darlow and Moule 5106)"
