The three copies of the Delft Bible of 1477 at the Universiteitsbibliotheek in Ghent share leaves removed from an imperfect copy with contemporary annotations by Cornelius Aernoldszoon. In 1978, Albert Derolez compiled a census of these dispersed leaves, locating all but 57 of the original 340 leaves from volume two. Recently, 55 of the missing Aernoldszoon leaves were discovered in a 'made-up' copy of the Delft Bible at Bridwell Library, Dallas, along with additional leaves taken from the other two copies at UB Ghent. The former owner of the Bridwell Library copy was Frans Vergauwen, who evidently broke up several copies to 'perfect' both his own copy and to make up the copies at UB Ghent, c.1875
