Want a Digital Copy of the First Edition of the Book of Concord? Free Download Available

I mentioned a few weeks ago a link that Pastor Harrison had sleuthed out in his never ending quest to find rare and wonderful first editions of Lutheran works. He had found a complete, full color, scanned version of the Book of Concord from a German library and I had failed to notice that not only can you have fun viewing it online, you can download the whole thing as a PDF file and explore it to your heart’s content off-line. Here’s the direct link to the PDF download. It is a large file, so if you have only dial-up or slower broadband, so be advised.

    Every time I try to download it, I get an error message saying the file is damaged and won’t open. Any suggestions as to what I should do?

      It is a hugs file, make sure it has completely downloaded before trying to open it

    That’s the problem. It won’t download completely. I tell it to save the file and I get around 5 or 6 mb and then it stops.

    My first try was to download via “open in Adobe Acrobat Reader.” It stopped after 35 GB with the Reader opening to say that the file was damaged and couldn’t open.

    Second attempt was to save the file and it worked even though it did stop at 50% because my DSL line went down. Put download window on “pause”, rebooted the DSL modem and resumed the download. It took well over an hour total on a 1.5 mbps line.

    I could send you the entire PDF file on an USB thumb drive or burned to a CD disc and mailed in snailmail. Please let me know.
