About this Item

2 volumes in one, folio, pp. [12], 499, 503; a6 A-E6 F4 G-2T6; A-2T6; 22 engraved plates including 5 folding; woodcut printer's devices typographical decorative head-pieces; text printed in double columns; contemporary blind-tooled boards, unadorned spine in 6 compartments, steel clasps (lacking on lower board), all edges red; some discoloration to top spine compartment; preliminaries foxed, else interior fine. Without the two supplementary volumes. Calmet (1672-1757) was a French Benedictine scholar and teacher of philosophy and theology. "The erudition of Calmet's exegetical writings won him a reputation that was not confined to the Roman Catholic Church, but they have failed to stand the test of modern scholarship. His Dictionnaire historique is among the most noteworthy [and] as a pioneer in a branch of Biblical study, which received wide development in the 19th century, Calmet is worthy of remembrance" (EB-11). Calmet was the first to refrain from giving allegorical interpretations, confining himself to only the literal. The work was originally published in French in 2 volumes in 1722, and the supplement in 1728. This edition not in Graesse or Vancil. Bookseller Inventory # 43892
