The following description was prepared by William Gross:
This small format Hebrew Bible printed by the sons of Franciscus Raphelengius is among the first Hebrew books published in Leiden. Even though it is a miniature volume, the thick book contains the entire Bible.
The Bible is in four parts: Chamishah Chumshei Torah, Nevi’im Rishonim, Nevi’im Achronim, and Ketuvim. No general title page; unillustrated title page for each part.
The title page bears a simple text, stating that it was printed with great care by the sons of Franciscus Raphelengius in the year 1610 here, in the praiseworthy city, Leiden. The Raphelengius press was originally founded by Christopher Plantin and operated, from 1585, by his son-in-law, Franciscus Raphelengius. With the latter’s death in 1597, the press was managed by his sons, primarily Franciscus the younger (II).
