We have received news of a theft from a private residence in Sharon, CT. Missing is a set of Lutheran bibles, dated mid-17thC, no fewer than 6, no more than 8, each measuring 15" tall, 12" wide and 4.5" thick, each with a metal clasp. The title below has been lifted from a description of the same title currently available on ABE. While we are not sure of the date, there were evidently five editions of this title between 1555 and 1600.
