Image description: This book of martyrs is one of the first and largest bound volumes produced in the colonial United States. It was printed and bound at the Ephrata Cloister at the request of Mennonites, who disapproved of the frontispiece depicting a baptism. A second printing with a more amenable frontispiece was ordered.
This frontispiece is engraved by M. Eben (loose and slightly smaller then the leaves of this copy) and shows the symbol of the Holy Ghost and two standing figures. The volume is in German.
