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: "Rouen: Printed by Iohn Covstvrier The second edition of the Roman Catholic Bible in English, which succeeded the first (1609-1610) by twenty-five years. No further issue appeared until 115 years alter (1750). In general arrangement the 1635 edition follows the earlier text, but the 1750 one was drastic revision by Richard Challoner, in which he weakened the forceful English of the original Elizabethan translators. The Douai Bibles are sometimes called “rosin” Bibles from the reading “Is there noe rosen in Galaad” in Jeremiah viii. 22. (Darlow and Moule 387)"
