Munich: Bremer Presse, 1926-1929. Hardcover. 365 copies. This is a magnificent production from the famed Bremer Presse of Germany - probably their masterpiece. They published books from 1911 to 1939, interrupted only by World War I. It was founded by Willy Wiegand, and like England's Doves Press, rejected ornament except for splendid initials draw by Anna Simons and relied upon carefully chosen types and painstaking presswork to produce its limited edition hand printed books. The colophon states that this edition was printed to commemorate the 400 year anniversary of the publication of Martin Luther's German bible. The text was based on the editions published in 1545 and 1546. The Bible (German: Lutherbibel) was the first German language Bible translation from Latin sources. The New Testament was first published in September 1522, and the complete Bible, containing the Old and New Testaments with Apocrypha, in 1534. Luther continued to make improvements to the text until 1545. The five volumes are: Die Bucher Mose; Teil des Alten Testaments; Teil des Alten Testaments; Die Propheten; Das Neue Testament.
