Comments

Volumes from the private library of the Reverend John Henry Augustus Bomberger (1817-1890), founder and first President of Ursinus College.

Kleuker was an early German specialist in oriental apologetics.

As in the case of other volumes in Bomberger’s library, these books may have come from his grandfather’s collection brought over from the continent in the 1790s. Bomberger’s grandfather was the Reverend John Henry Hoffmeier, a Palatinate pastor from Cothen in the Anhalt region of Germany. A product of the Pietist centers in Bremen and Halle, Hoffmeier was typical of the initial ministers in the German Reformed Church in Pennsylvania. His chief pastorate was at First Reformed Church in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, where Bomberger was brought up and educated as a youth.
