Dutch Old Testament

[Dutch Old Testament].
Delft: Jacob Jacobszoon van der Meer and Mauricius Yemantszoon, 10 January 1477. (Prothro B-147)

The first book printed at Delft, this two-volume Old Testament was the first edition of any part of the Bible in Dutch. Its text was based on a fourteenth-century translation. The hand-written annotations were added in 1477 by the original owner, Cornelius Aernoldszoon, a member of the Brethren of the Common Life who resided at Eemsteyn, near Dordrecht.
