Caption: "Leaf from the Aldine Greek Bible, 1518 A.D., In aedibus Aldi et Andrea Soceri, Venetiis; First complete Bible printed in Greek. Edited by Andreas Asolanus, father-in-law of Aldus. The text is based largely upon the Complutensian Polyglot for the Old Testament, and upon Erasmus' first edition of the New Testament in Greek. The type used by Aldus, it is said, imitated the Greek writing of his friend, the great scholar Musurus, and contained an immense number of ligatures and contractions. From a duplicate copy sold by the British Museum in 1834 (Darlow and Moule 4594)--Otto F. Ege."
Leaf has headlines and signatures.
