gehouden tot Dordrecht in de Jaren 1618 ende 1619. ... Te Leyden: De W. van C. Boutesteyn 1715. Thick sm. 4to. Orig. full blind-embossed calf with orig. brass clasps and corner protectors over heavy bevelled wooden boards. Comprising engrv. illust title-page and text in a black gothic type printed in double columns. Complete with the Apocryphe at end. NOTE: The States-General (Staten Generael) instructed the Synod of Dordrecht with the translation of the Bible into the Dutch language at a special meeting in 1618. Just as the 'Luther Bible' as well as the 'King James Bible' had a major influence on both the literature and art of both Germany and England so the 'Statenbijbel' as this became known had a major effect on the Dutch poets writers and culture in Holland with artists such as Rembrandt being inspired by biblical motives. A fine example of early Dutch binding.
