|John Bunyan, Johann Bunians Pilgrims-oder Christen Reise auss diesem Welt nach der Zukünftigen der dritten Theil..... Germanton: Gedruckt und zu finden bey Christoph Saur, 1755.|
Born in Germany in 1694, Saur came to America in 1724, and settled in Germantown.
After pursuing several other careers, he became a printer, acquiring press,
type, and books from a failed Baptist (Tunker) enterprise. He published the
first almanac in German in the colonies and the first European-language Bible
printed in America. Sauer died in 1758.
