London Großbritannischen und Ausländischen Bibel-Gesellschaft leather Good 8vo. 
[2], [1]-1189, [1], [1]-398 pages [lacking 2 leaves at rear]. Measures 22 x 14 cm; 8.75 x 5.5 inches. A well preserved and foundational memento of Ferdinand Conrad Temme's sojourn as the third pastor of the Lunenburg Lutheran congregation. With receipt for the purchase of this Bible: 5 schillings paid to Johann Nicolaus Kaulbach, signed and dated December 1819 on verso of title page. A distinguished career of pedagogy in his homeland was interrupted by Napoleonic invasion from which he fled to Pennsylvania to serve as a pastor, from whence he was called to fill a vacancy in Lunenburg: "I reluctantly accepted this call, for reasons to myself to this day unaccountable and unknown, and on the 5th of February, 1808, commenced the voyage to this Siberia of America. On the 28th of April in the same year, I first trod the soil of Nova Scotia, at 2 o'clock at night." [D. Luther Roth: Acadie and the Acadians, 369f.] Recognizing the need for his congregations to have access to biblical study aids Temme was instrumental in writing and having printed teachings specifically for those in his care [see Roth p.374ff]. Full leather with early sewn repairs to hinges and foot of spine. Leather on spine and inner hinges recently and professinally stabilized retaining all original elements. One blank endpaper at front, none at rear. Lacking twenty verses of the final chapter of Revelation: the last complete verse present is Revelation 21:1 [a complete bible ends with Rev. 21:21]. Very little staining, generally a clean age-toned interior.
