Additional Notes:
Dutch ..... Bijbels die meestal uitsluitend illustraties bevatten, soms in combinatie met korte teksten. In vroeger tijden werden ze gebruikt om Bijbelkennis onder ongeletterden te verspreiden. Er zijn talrijke middeleeuwse plaatjes-Bijbels bewaard gebleven, en zelfs exemplaren uit de 11de en 12de eeuw, maar er bestaan ook nog exemplaren uit de 16de eeuw.
