dc.description.abstractThis 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: "Germantown: Gedruckt bey Christoph Sauer. The second edition of the first Bible issued in a literary tongue in North America, printed by Christopher Sauer, the younger. Luther’s version was adopted for the text. The third issue of 3000 (1776) was still unbound when the Battle of Germantown was fount (1777), and nearly the entire edition of this Dunkard publisher was used by the British soldiers for gun wading. A paper mill, a foundry, and a bindery were established by the versatile Sauer for his work. Sauer wrote: 'The price of our nearly finish Bible is plain binding with a clasp will be eighteen shillings, but to the poor and needed we have no price.'"en_US
