Underneath a eight line text in Latin and German, with the following text :
Spargitur eoas divinum lumen in oras,
Et tristes tenebrae discutiuntur ibi.
Qui latices hausit stygios iam fonte salutis
Indus roratur, sacra fluenta bibens.
Tartareus cultu meliori pellitur hostis,
Destruit armipotens numina ficta manus.
Christe! Tibi pariat porro tua dextra triumphos,
Disiice labantes et phlegetonis opes.

Des höchsten Gnadenreich erweitert seine Grenzen,
Es bricht der Wahrheit Licht den armen Heiden an,
Man sieht im Orient die reine Lehre glänzen,
Es tritt das schwarze Volk nun auf die Lebens-Bahn,
Der stumme Götze muss vom alten Sitze weichen,
Man nimmt den wahren Gott in Kirch und Herzen ein,
Lass, Heiland! deine Hand noch immer weiter reichen,
Und deiner Lehre Sieg recht ausgebreitet sein.

Together with 4pp. letterpress in German with a very detailed description of the activities of the Missionaries in India.

Condition : Good and dark impression, with good margins. Old repair of a tear in left hand part, running 20cm. into engraved area. Some minor paper thinness along old foldings. Several foldings, with 4pp separate text sheet.
