I have other pages with old documentation from the 1800s. i noticed that was not sent in the above email. I need to send 5-6 other pages in the bible. Thank God you did not get the attached file. I think it is most of the pictures on my computer. Let me get this sent to you. I'll find a young person.

the link above tells about John Arndt on page 46k and this book . It was first written in German in 1655 and the copy you have was one of the most complete when it was translated into English in 1720.

After reviewing several guide values books I have found that this book has a value of 12500-150.00 on todays market. This is a hard to find book however there is no real demand for this book currently. It would take a special collector looking for this book to make the sale.
