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. There is a typed description at the bottom of the mat, which reads: “The rare first issue is known as the great “He” bible because Ruth III:15 reads “…and he went into the city,” while the second issue used the word “she”. This was printed by Robert Barker, who advanced considerable amounts of money to the editors over a period of seven years.”
