To be clear, this book contains two parts of the 1648 edition combined, not the entire work. 326 to 368 and 391 to 598, one or more woodcut illustrations on each page.
Two frontispiece of other books pasted on endpapers. Contains a part of the first and only edition of a Dutch Catholic devotional book on the life of Christ (in 5 numbered parts), the works of the Apostles, saints' lives, and religious emblems, perhaps the most richly illustrated woodcut book of the 17th century, with woodcuts by Van Sichem.
Van Sichem may also have cut the numerous woodcut decorated initials with biblical figures, appearing mostly in the works of the Apostles. The book's title may have been influenced by an otherwise unrelated work published in the previous year, Den schat der zielen, an unillustrated translation of a work apparently first written in Catalan by Miguel Comalada, which saw later editions as well. The work is built entirely around Van Sichem's extraordinary woodcuts. A famous and popular Catholic devotional work.Old Dutch Statenbijbel, printed in Amsterdam & Haarlem, 1809.
