   Sermons from Dr. Eduard Neimann (1804-84) on each of the commandments in the Decalogue. The title page describes Dr. Niemann as hofprediger und Consistoriatrath (court preacher). There is a dedication to Dem herrn Dr. jur. Et phil. Stüde, vorstand des königl. (royal manager in Hannover) followed by a brief forward from the author,a nd then the text, all in a single column in Fraktur. Examples of the sermons are 1) Ich bin der herr, dein Gott. Du sollst nicht andere Götter haben neben mir (I am the Lord, your God. You should not have any other gods beside me); Du sollst dir kein Bildniss, nich irgen ein Gleichniss machen (prohibition against graven images); Du sollst den Namen des herrn, deines Gottes, nicht misbrauchen (prohibition against taking Godís name in vain); etc. The ten commandments here are actually divided into eleven sermons.

Dr. Niemann also wrote Altes und neues in vorträgen und abhandlungen. (Hannover, 1878) and Das Vaterunser in zehn predigten (Leipzig, 1881).
