The cumulative printers index in W. Nijhoff and M.E. Kronenberg's Nerlerlranrl- .sche BiblioAr(zl)hie van 1500-1540 (NK), part III, vol III, contains the most recent, complete description of the Delft printer Cornelis Lettersnijder's publishers' list. It records four editions of the New Testament in 1518, 1524, 1525, and 1533. Copies exist only of the well-known edition of 1524 (NK 378). It is generally considered unlikely that a 1518 edition (NK 0140) ever existed. In contrast to previous scholarship, M.E. Kronenberg believes that no 1525 edition (NK 0149) existed either. Only a few 19th-century catalogues attest to the 1533 (NK 0160) edition. The present study starts with a short exploration of the printer and his list. It goes on to deal with his editions of the New Testament. The study confirms that the editions of 1518 anJ 1525 were indeed never published, so that of the four editions supposed, only two ever saw print. The recent discovery by the author in the "Jezuietenbibliotheek Berchmanianum" in Nijmegen of a copy of the 1533 edition enables him to offer a bibliographical description of the publication in addition to an analysis of the contents of this heretofore so poorly known edition. The edition was printed in octavo format and was published in a joint venture with the printer Henrick Peetersen van Middelburch. The study demonstrates how the Antwerp printer Michiel Hillen van Hoochstraten copied and simplified Lettersnijder's text in the 1524 edition for his own editions of the New Testament in 1527, 1530, and 1531 (2x). It goes on to show that one of Van Hoochstraten's editions in turn stood at the basis of Lettersnijder's 1533 edition of the New Testament.
