Special Collections receives remarkable gift

26 November 2020

Friday 20 November, in the Special Collections research room UG Library director Marjolein Nieboer was handed a beautiful gift by Mrs Dini Stokkentreeff of Delden. It concerned three editions of the bible, at one time bound together in one volume (a so-called convolute).

The convolute contians these editions:

  1. Biblia. Dat is de gantsche H. Schrifture, vervattende alle de canonycke boecken des Ouden en des Nieuwen Testaments (Amsterdam 1777)
  2. De prophetien der propheten, en Het Nieuwe Testament, ofte Alle boeken des Nieuwen Verbondts onses heeren Jesu Christi (Amsterdam 1774)
  3. Het boek der psalmen, nevens de gezangen bij de Hervormde Kerk van Nederland in gebruik (Amsterdam 1774)

This pristine volume is a fine addition to our collection of Dutch language bibles that consists of more than 700 editions, among which the very first bible printed in Dutch (Delft 1477).
