About this Item

Item: Bible, German: "Das Neue Testament unsers Herrn & Heilandes Jesu Christi, nach der Deutschen Ueberfezung D. Martin Luthers. Mit turzem Inhalt eines jeden Capitels, und vollstaendiger Anweisung gleicher Schriftstellen. Wie auch aller Sonn und Festtaigigen Evangelien und Episteln. Erste Auflage." Printer: Michael Billmeyer Place: Germantown, Pennsylvania Date: 1787 Description: FIRST BILLMEYER EDITION; Rebound full leather, five raised bands. some ink scrawlings verso general title. Browned pages, some staining; intact, good condition. Complete. History: In 1777 the British destroyed the Germantown (Pennsylvania) printing establishment of the Brethren (Dunkard) printer, Christopher Saur, Jr. Six years later Peter Leibert, a Brethren minister, and Michael Billmeyer, his Lutheran son-in-law, bought what was usable of the Saur equipment, and set up shop in Germantown, being more or less the successors of the younger Saur. This partnership continued for about three years, after which Billmeyer continued alone, and Leibert started a new printing business. In 1785 the Billmeyer press issued a reprint of the Ausbund, and a polemic from a onetime Franconia Mennonite bishop, Ein Aufsatz oder Verteidigung von Christian Funk. In 1790 it reprinted Roosen's Christliches Gemütsgespräch. In 1803 Billmeyer printed the new Franconia Conference hymnbook, Die kleine geistliche Harfe der Kinder Zions, and reprinted it in 1820. In 1805 he issued the fourth edition of Die Wandelnde Seele by J. P. Schabalie. He was thus in effect for a generation the printer for the Franconia Mennonites. Bookseller Inventory # 000229
