BIBLES -- SICHEM (II), Chr. v. Bibels Tresoor, ofte Der Zielen Lusthof, Uytgebeelt in Figueren, door verscheyden Meesters. Ende gesneden, door Christoffel Van Sichem. Amst., P.I. Paets, 1646. 776 pp. W. title within woodcut architectural border & all the woodcuts/woodcut borders (over 750). 4°. Cont. cf. w. raised bands. (Spine and corners reinforced, new endpapers, woodcut on p. 645 replaced by another, w. num. (marginal) repairs and stains, thumbed/soiled in places, but apart from the last blank that is lacking (Iii4), a complete copy).Rare work with biblical illustrations, seldomly found complete. It contains merely Old Testament images (apart from a few introductory images). A lot of images by Van Sichem are derived from well-known artists. The most eye-catching are the direct copies (over 100) of Hans Holbein's "Icones" and some of Antonio Tempesta's Old Testament engravings. - Van der Coelen, De Schrift verbeeld, p. 173ff; Poortman II, p. 96 (nr. 3); BCNI 10045.
