Holbein Bible

Child Holbein Bible

From Biblia Sacra iuxta vulgatam quam dicvnt editionem, published by Jean Benoit, 1552. For a long time I thought they were coarse copies of Holbein, then I began to think they were genuine woodcuts that had been clumsily coloured. But they are in fact detailed copies of the genuine Holbein.
