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: "A typical black letter (lettre de forme) Bible of the Low Countries, printed in Leiden. It is contemporaneous with the earliest editions of Tyndale’s and Coverdale’s Testaments and Bibles, many of which were printed in nearby Antwerp (1525-1535), and which also reflect, as did most of the English Reformation Bibles of the sixteenth century, this form of typographical design. "
