Incredible copper engraving from a Dutch Bible. A hemisphere depicting the Old World is suspended above a scene of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, which is teeming with life. Below the main engraving are four Biblical scenes from both the Old and New Testaments, including the Crucifixion. Dutch text on verso.
Margins extended all around to accommodate framing and backed with light Japanese tissue.
