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: "Londini: Gulielmus Pickering. The smallest Greek Testament even published. The size of type employed is mown as “diamond”, and there are sixteen lines to an inch. William Pickering was England’s most important bookseller and publisher at this time. His series of miniature books, now known as Diamond Classics, were then regarded, and still are, as a great achievement in typesetting and printing. (Darlow and Moule 4816)"
