(engraved title page) n.p., (engraved title page) n.p. Contemporary tortoise-shell binding with 2 silver clasps and 4 silver hinges, gilt-edged and embossed text block, 8vo (some small pieces chipped off the binding). Dutch church book in the French language containing the Geneva version of the New Testament, followed by the Psalms - with musical notation - of Clement Marot en Theodorus Beza, and the Formularies. Attractive binding bound in black with ochre coloured flamed tortoiseshell with silver double clasp and 4 hinges. The clasps have straight catches but both the hasps and joints on the spine have an identically cut out pattern. The use of tortoiseshell as a book binding material became popular in the 17th and 18th centuries and was mostly used for binding religious texts, small Bibles, prayer books, and gift books for the wealthy middle class. The material came from exotic marine turtles and was valued due to its beauty, shine and rarity - the name tortoiseshell can therefore be misleading because the material has nothing to do with land tortoises. Fewer than 4 percent of the luxury bindings made in the Netherlands in the 18th century was covered in materials other than leather and vellum. These bindings were regarded as richer and were more expensive. This is considered even more for tortoise shells
