Note 1 In 1559 Plantin printed a Bible in 8⁰ showing the imprint of J. Steelsius (see following no.). This must have been a joint edition, in which some copies received a title-page with Plantin's address, other copies a title-page with the address of the co-publisher. Only copies with Steelsius's imprint seem to have survived.
Note 2 According to the colophon the printing was finished on 1 June 1559.
Note 3 Listed in M 296, folio 2r (Biblia Lat. in 8⁰ ad Exemplar Louan. a⁰ 1559, f[euilles] 70, [price:] stuivers 16), and M 164, folio 3v.
Note 4 From this Bible in 8⁰, a number of copies of the Novum Testamentum were reprinted in 24mo: see no. cp013395.
