= Poortman I, p.127: "(...) Eigenlijk kunnen we de uitgave van 1560 geen Liesveldtbijbel noemen. Onder een Liesveldtbijbel verstaan we een Protestantse bijbel. Toch wordt de bijbel van 1560 vaak Liesveldtbijbel genoemd; dit komt doordat het titelblad, behalve de tekst, gelijk is aan het oorspronkelijke titelblad van de Liesveldtbijbel, met het drukkersmerk van Jacob van Liesveldt. In hetzelfde jaar (1560) komt er ook een echte Liesveldtbijbel uit, zonder plaatsnaam en zonder de naam van de uitgever, 'na de copye van Jacob van Liesveldt'. Het ontbreken van deze gegevens zal wel toe te schrijven zijn aan de vervolging." Rare. SEE ILLUSTRATION PLATE CXLIV.
