Leaf from a Suppressed Luther Bible
In a Bible printed later in this same year, Luther's Warnung wieder den Geiz, occurs for the first time, complaining of incorrect pirated edition of his text. This Leipzig edition, published without Luther's sanction, and afterward suppressed at his wish on account of its errors, probably was printed secretly because of the ban placed on Reformation literature by Duke George of Saxony. At this time Luther was the "best seller" of the century, and his writing in High German soon made that language the national one.
