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: "New York. Dodd, Mead, and Company. A new translation from the Hebrew into English under the direction of the great Shakespearean scholar, Horace Howard Furness. Original sources used by the translator are indicated by the background of different colors. Eight tints or colors were used in Joshua along: dark red, light red, dark blue, light blue, purple, green, brown, and orange. The cost of editing and color printing was so great, that only a few books of the Bible were issued and the undertaking was then discontinued."
