The handwritten entry illustrated below appears on page 8 of a copy of Panoplia Christiana by Gervasius. Can one of the Germanists here read it? The first two or three words will do. I think it's the title of a book published in 1726. Thanks.

I'm not sure I've got it all completely right but I'm positive it's not a book title:

"Zur Kürchen [?] alhier im Dubraucke geschencket den 6ten Xb: 1726. von mier Christian Siegemundt Kobern [?]."

"At the church here in Dubrawka presented on the 6th of December 1726 by myself, Christian Siegmund Kober."

[Edit: I got confused with the month, it should, of course, have been December!]

[PS: I wish someone would present me with that kind of gift for Sinterklaas, as the Dutch call it.]

Thanks Mike, that's great.
