5852 Translation - German

10/1/2006 This is a photo from a book that appears to have been published in 1830. I'm not even sure what it is - perhaps a bible. I can only make out the word "Baum" above 1838. It is from a book passed down in the Baum family, so that makes sense. I can't tell if it is a vital record or just a long version of saying "this is my book". Any insights are very welcome!

5853 Translation - Hebrew

10/1/2006 This is the frontispiece of a book that I cannot identify. It was passed down in the Baum family. I would be interested in both what the book is and what the handwritten information is. I can tell the German says something to the effect of "This book belongs to Moses Baum in ???" - and then the rest appears to be hebrew. Any help is VERY appreciated.
