Novum Testamentum (Greek).
Strängnäs: Lars Arvid Collin, 1758.

Copy 2 printed on extra-large paper. (BRB1558)

These two complete sets of sixty uncut, unfolded, and unbound paper sheets comprise two copies of the Greek New Testament. Printed in Sweden with the same setting of type, the two copies present a striking contrast to each other as the size of the paper utilized for the second copy was much larger than that used for the first. The availability of two paper sizes provided potential purchasers with the choice between a larger, more luxurious New Testament with generous margins, or a smaller, more easily portable option.
