What books did Johann Sebastian Bach have on his shelves at the time of his death?

We have a list of them.
Most of the books themselves were lost.

But not all of them.

Fortunately the book that for Bach was the most important, his three-volume Bible, has been preserved and found its way to a library in St. Louis, USA.


You can now subscribe to this unique Bach document, which reproduces the original in the most minute details.

A unique facsimile of the most extraordinary Bach document

A complete facsimile, in which every detail of the original has been reproduced, has now become available to interested buyers and institutions. Companies in the United States (where the Bible is kept in Concordia Seminary Library in St. Louis) and Poland (where experts have been intensely involved in the printing and binding process) have worked with the Dutch publisher Van Wijnen of Franeker, who acquired the world-wide rights for this publication. This has led to a remarkable finished product.

The Bach-Calov Bible will be available for the first time. Never before has this unique work been republished.

Unique workmanship

Every buyer will receive an exclusive special invitation to the official international presentation of the Bible in Leipzig, as well as to the American presentation event, which we hope to organize once the commentary volume is ready.
