Anyone want to take a stab at identifying or dating this German bible? It’s missing the title page and the first 3 signatures of the test block.

What I know so far about it is:

-It’s a Luther Bible
-The binding is panel stamped with portraits of what I think are Luther and another person
-I haven’t figured out what particular translation it is, or even if it’s high or low German
-There are some woodcuts throughout that look like they were copied after those made by the famous illustrator Virgil Solis

Hoping some of you Renaissance folk will recognize it!
