Quarto. VIII, 472pp. Original printed wrappers over burgundy cloth with gold lettering on spine. Top edge red. Publisher's logo on title page. Noted scholar Menachem Mansoor makes an extremely valuable addition to the wealth of literature on Bachya ben Yosef ibn Pakuda's extensively-studied treatise on spirituality and ethical behavior. Whereas most extant popular translations are taken from Ibn Tibbon's definitive Hebrew translation, Mansoor works from the recovered Arabic version - the language in which Bachya wrote. The result is a deeper and richer understanding of the subtleties of this already remarkable work. Wrappers, binding and interior in overall very good condition. Bookseller Inventory #
