DESCRIPTION:
Edition of the bible of Johan Michael Dilherr in large-folio, 1736. Due to the huge costs, producing the bible of Weimar, Endter the Older published a smaller edition under the responsibility of pastor Johann Michael Dilherr in 1656. The Dilherr bible brought the Endter family great success. From 1656 till 1788 they published at least 32 editions of this bible. The bible offers the continuous text of the Luther bible, therefore it is also suitable for reading in familiar atmosphere, and are due to the woodcuts similar to a storybook.
