Beautifully illustrated large folio Dutch States Bible (Statenbijbel) with 6 six maps, including a world map, and a complete set of the striking illustrations drawn and engraved by Bernard Picart and others. The maps belong to the larger of two series by Daniël Stoopendaal and were explicitly made for the Keur Bibles with, for example, Bible scenes (rather than figures from classical mythology) decorating the world map.
With the armorial bookplate of Hendrik Gerardsz. van Couwenhoven (1711-1792) and a short handwritten genealogy of Couwenhoven's family, from Couwenhoven's marriage in 1738 to the birth of this last child in 1766. The binding appears to date from the middle quarters of the 18th century, so it may have been bound and presented for the occasion of the 1738 wedding. In very good condition. The binding is slightly worn at the joints, the headcap of volume 1 is damaged and there are a few other minor surface imperfections, but it remains generally in very good condition. Darlow & Moule 3337; for the maps: Poortman & Augusteijn, pp. 196-203 (G II, 2nd state, maps 1-6); for the prints: Poortman, Bijbel en prent II, pp. 140-145.
