Full contemporary leather, almost intact and with the contemporary bronze ornaments. Paper browned all around, (very characteristic of the period (1655-70) Dutch paper), otherwise very good copy. By the middle of 17th century, the Bibles started to be richly embellished with maps, in an effort to combine the spiritual with a contemporary representation. The Sacred Geography appeared. Among the first examples, this publication by Elsevier is decorated by 6 splendid maps prepared by C.Danckerts de Ry (II) (1596-1662), one of the leading Geographers of the golden age of the Dutch supremacy in Arts.
