Fifteenth-Century Low German Bible
Low German Bible.
De Biblie mit vlitigher achtinghe, recht na deme latine in dudesck auerghesettet.
Lübeck: Steffen Arndes, 19 November 1494. (06174)
Although a translation of the Bible in the Low German dialect of northwest Germany first appeared circa 1480 at Cologne, this third edition of 1494 was essentially a new translation of the Latin into Niederdeutsch. The extensive use of double-column woodcuts made this one of the most elaborately illustrated Bibles of the fifteenth century.
