Beautifully illustrated large folio Dutch States Bible (Statenbijbel) with 6 six maps, including a world map. They belong to the larger of two series by Daniël Stoopendaal, first published in 1702 and revised in the plates for the present Bible. They were explicitly made for the Keur Bibles with, for example, Bible scenes (rather than figures from classical mythology) decorating the world map. The world map shows two hemispheres, a copernican solar system in the upper and a ptolemaic in the lower smaller circle. The four continents are symbolically represented in the four corners.
Some of the maps with some small tear along the folds and lacking one engraved plate; hinges damaged at the ends; generally in good condition. Darlow & Moule 3337; Poortman & Augusteijn, pp. 193-203 (G II, 2nd state, maps 1-6); Poortman, Bijbel en prent, pp. 172-176.
