(Clausthal): Self published, 1685. First edition. Contemporary parchment, hand-lettered Dem Bergwerck (The Mine) on the spine, iv, 547, (93)pp., printed in black letter. A collection of sermons for miners, written in miner vernacular, with an extensive (93 page) glossary of mining terms. Suchland (1629-1687) was the minister for Clausthal in the Harz Mountains, an important mining region. With comment on mining from other continents, including the Americas (pp. 62-63). From the library of August Neander (1789-1850), his book label. He was a prominent modern German protestant (though Jewish born) theologian and church historian. Neander was seemingly well respected by English speaking Christian churchmen - his 4600 volume library was purchased by Roswell S. Burrows, an American businessman, a few years after Neander's death in 1850. Very scarce, just five copies in WorldCat, four in Western Europe, one in North America.
