According to Poortman II, p.34: "Schabaelie was doopsgezind predikant te Alkmaar. Hij ging de 'Figuer-Bibel" zelf uitgeven en verkopen (...) de tekst en de meeste prenten waren in 1643 al uitgegeven door Nicolas Visscher. Hoe de zakelijke verhouding tussen Schabaelie en Visscher was weten we niet. (...) de prenten heeft hij hoogstwaarschijnlijk van Visscher gekocht." For Schabaelje see: Biografisch lexicon voor de geschiedenis van het Nederlands protestantisme, vol. 6, p.271ff: "In zijn laatste Alkmaarse jaren heeft hij volumineuzer werken op de pers gebracht, zoals Den grooten figuer Bibel (1646), een oblong foliant met ruim 470 fraaie bijbelprenten, afkomstig uit Claes Jansz Visschers beroemde Theatrum biblicum, waarbij S. instructieve toelichtingen schreef." ¤
