A volume from the private library of the Reverend John Henry Augustus Bomberger (1817-1890), founder and first President of Ursinus College.
This was one of many "personal" catechisms compiled by Lutheran and Reformed pastors in the East - all of them attempts at giving young people the essence of either Luther's Catechism or the Heidelberg Catechism in palatable forms. Bomberger himself experimented along such lines, producing in 1850 a Youths Catechism designed to win widespread denominational acceptance. It did not, although it received attention at the Synod meeting of 1850 in Martinsburg.
The book contains an inscription: "Kindly presented by Rev. Wm Anders [William S. Anders]."
