A book that everyone will love to look at!

A facsimilie edition of the 1534 Luther Bible is a bibliophile edition of lasting value and dreams. It documents the first complete edition of the Bible in Martin Luther's translation, included the prefaces to the books of the Bible and marginal notes.

The special attraction of this facsimile is in the coloured manual initials and woodcuts from the workshop of Lucas Cranach, the designs of which Luther himself participated in.Included in the volume is a detailed cultural and historical introduction which gives access to backgrounds, principles, and the historical impact of this historical translation.

The quality furnishings and the outstanding introduction make this work an aesthetic and cultural pleasure.

The facsimilie is of the hand-coloured copy of the Duchess Anna Amalia Library in Weimar.
