The Dietrich catechism was used by Missouri.
Johann Conrad Dietrich wrote it in 1613, and it was epitomized in 1627.
Missouri issued a revision of the epitome in 1858.
Compare the Dresden Catechism.

It is 220 pages, about 6" x 4", reddish-brown cloth binding
BTW, $45 seems high. Mine is in excellent, nearly-new condition only
some slight rubbing on the boards), and I think I paid less than $20 for
this, sometime in the last ten tears. (Working solely from memory--I
usually write the acquisition date and price in the inner margin of the
title page, but I seem to have neglected to do so for this volume.)
