Leidsche Bundel, a Dutch Mennonite hymnbook which took its name from Leiden where it has been printed. The official name was Liederen ten gebruike in doopsgezinde gemeenten. It was compiled by two Dutch Mennonite ministers, J. Sepp of Beverwijk and H. Boetje of Hengelo, who in this hymnbook published 198 hymns from other hymnals. The first edition appeared October 1897, followed by four other editions: 1899, 1903, 1911, 1919. In 1900 an anthology of Psalms, according to the version of the Dutch Reformed Church, was added, reprinted in 1906. Besides a few old Mennonite hymnals and the hymnal of the Dutch Protestant Union (see Protestantenbond) the Leidsche Bundel was the most used hymnal until 1944. In 1900 the Leidsche Bundel was used by 14, in 1925 by 53 congregations.
