A fine copy of a later Keur edition of the so called "Staten Bijbel," the States General Bible, the official protestant translation of the Bible into Dutch, established in 1618-1619 at the Synode of Dortrecht. The deluxe issues of this Bible with its maps and vignettes magnificently colored and heightened in gold are rare on the market. In this copy the world map, showing California as a island (Shirley, World, 513) is adapted from the Visscher world map of 1658 (Shirley 406), using the elaborate border decoration from Visscher, with the map printed at a slightly reduced size (360 x 470 mm). The other maps added to the Bible are St Paul's journeys around the Mediterranean, a plan of Jerusalem, and 3 other elaborate maps of the Holy Land. The 96 engraved vignette illustrations appear only in select copies of this bible and are printed by Frederick de Wit, after Merian and Danckerts. Portman I, 155.
