|Language Note:||This translation of Luther's Bible into Low German is thought to have been done by Johann Hoddersen.|
|Notes:||Imprint details taken from the title page for the New Testament, which reads:"Dat Nye Testament vordüdeschet Dorch D. Martinum Lutherum. Uth der lesten Correctur mercklick vorbetert vnde mit grotem ulyte Corrigeret. Magdeborch Gedrüchet dorch Wolffgang Kirchner. Anno 1578."
According to the British Library this is another edition of the Bible printed at Magdeburg in 1545 and the woodcuts are for the most part the same as those of the edition printed at Lübeck in 1533.
The "Summaria" which appears after the New Testament is by Johannes Bugenhagen and Veit Dietrich.
At the end of the New Testament there is a colophon, which reads: "Gedrücket tho Magdeborch dorch Wolffgang Kirchner. M.D. LXXVIII". Above the colophon there is a woodcut printer's device.
