1567 1st ed Louvain Holy BIBLE / Flemish Hentenius Latin Plantin Biblia Sacra
Antuerpiae : Ex officina Christophori Plantini, 1567. - 1567 1st ed Louvain Holy BIBLE / Flemish Hentenius Latin Plantin Biblia Sacra EXTREMELY Rare & Valuable Bible Translation Hentenius (1499 – 1566) was a Flemish Dominican Biblical exegete. Christophe Plantin (c.1520 – 1589) was an influential Renaissance humanist and book printer and publisher. Plantin's 1567 octavo edition of the Louvain Bible with the text in double columns printed in a tiny "Nonpareille" roman type, one of the smallest Bibles of its day, nicely displaying Plantin's excellent presswork and Pierre Haultin's type. The Latin Bible, edited by the Dominican Johannes Hentenius and protected by an Imperial privilege, first appeared in a 1547 folio edition at Louvain, followed by the Dutch edition in 1548 and the French in 1550.
