90 Canada - Imprint - German - Broadside) Zum neuen Jahr unsers Herrn und Heylandes JESU CHRISTO Anno Domini, 1777. Will hierdurch ein Diener, JESU der Lieben Gemeinde zum bestaendigen Andencken und Liebe JESU reitzen
1777, 
(Canada – Imprint – German – Broadside). Zum neuen Jahr unsers Herrn und Heylandes JESU CHRISTO Anno Domini, 1777. Will hierdurch ein Diener, JESU derLieben Gemeinde zum bestaendigen Andencken und Liebe JESU reitzen : Auss. Luc. Am II. Cap. Und da acht Tage um wahren, dass dass Kind beschnitten wurde, da wurde seyn Nahme, genehut JESU, welcher genennet war von den Engel ehe Er in Mutter Leibe empfangen war : J.N.J. Kein Nahme ift so schon, als meines JESU Nahme, Weil Er auf Teutsch, so viel als Seelichmacher heist: Es ist auch diesses Kind der rechte Weibes Saame, Der unss den Weg zum ewigen Leben weist: Den Nahmen last unss tieff, in das Hertze graben, Und in der letzten Noth, in unssern Munde haben. Euer Wohl-Wunscher und Diener J.C. C.V.W. Broadside (10 by 7.75 inches), on laid paper, no watermark. Printed one side only, with decorative border.

Not in Tremaine.

Possibly the earliest known German imprint in Canada.

It is likely the work of Anthony Henry (Anton Heinrich, 1734-1800) the Nova Scotia printer and an immigrant of German extraction.

According to the DCB, "socially Henry mixed with the German element in Halifax and at one time was a warden of the little Dutch church."

We are guessing that the "C.V.W." is Carl Magnus von Wrangel who is sending a Christmas greeting from Sweden to either the Nova Scotian Lutheran community.
Whether he asked for it to be printed or it was a local initiative is unknown. The fact that the document is not printed in Fraktur would seem an argument that it was not printed in Pennsylvania, Deleware, or the other centres of American Lutheranism as Fraktur printing was by then quite common there. Also it was the time of the Revolutionary War, so contact would be minimal.

Vertical tear along most of central crease, three horizontal creases, wear and short tear to edges, a few brown spots, small tear hole in centre of document affecting the word “den” before ”Engel”, contemporary (?) penned note to back, else complete copy. As is.

Very scarce. 5,000.00
