"In 1680 J. Gezelius, Bishop of Åbo, mooted the question of a proper revsion of the Bible, and in 1691 King Charles XI appointed a commission to carry this out thoroughly, with reference to the original texts, the Observationes Strengnenses, and Luther's latest revision. The work, however, was not definitely completed in 1697, when the King died. In November, 1697, his successor, Charles XII ordered the revision to be accelerated. But in 1698 the plan of a thoroughgoing revision was abandoned, as it proved too protracted in execution, and Eric Benzelius, then Bishop of Strängnäs and afterwards Archbishop of Uppsala, who had been president of the commission of revisers, was appointed by royal ordinance to take charge of a new edition of the Bible, which appeared in 1702-3.
For this Bible former editions were collated, and chapter-headings, notes, marginal matter etc. were revised, but very few changes were made in the text. It was much more carefully printed than its predecessor, and became the standard edition of the Swedish Bible"(Darlow & Moule).
From the library of Ulric Nils Gyldenstolpe [1689-1768], with his signature, and Nils Gyldenstolpe [1768-1844], with his engraved armorial bookplate.
