Abstract: This image is from a collection created by Etta Hanson and given to the College in 1954. All items are from Otto Ege's estate. The leaf was contained and mounted in a mat created by Otto Ege, as were all other leaves in this collection. There is a typed description at the bottom of the mat, which reads: "Gedruckt zu Leipzig durch Nicolaum Wolrab // In a Bible printed later in this same year, Luther’s Warnung wieder den Geiz, occurs for the first time, complaining of incorrect pirates editions of his text. This Leipzig editions, published without Luther’s sanction, and afterward suppressed at his wish on account of its errors, probably was printed secretly because of the ban placed on Reformation literature by Duke George of Saxony. At this time Luther was the “best seller” of the century, and his writing in High German soon made the language the national one."
