Octavo (8 x 6"). [68]pp; [80]pp; [72]pp; [88]pp; [44]pp; [56]pp; [64]pp; [96]pp; [24], 437, [19]pp. Contemporary full vellum with handwritten title in ink on spine. Printer's device to each title page. Decorative head-, tailpieces and initials.This first edition of Johann Buxtorf II's Protestant philologico-theological works are composed of:- I. De Linguæ Hebrææ Origine, Antiquitate, & Sanctitate (1644)- II. De Linguæ Hebrææ Confusione, & Plurium Linguarum Origine (1644)- III. De Linguæ Hebrææ Conservatione, Propagatione, & Duratione (1644)- IV. De Literarum Hebraicarum Genuina Antiquitate (1643)- V. De Nominibus Dei Hebraicis (1645)- VI. De Decalogo (1643)- VII. De Primæ C?næ Dominicæ Ritibus & Formâ (1642)Each of these titles have retained their original title page. These works are bound with:- "Vindiciae exercitationis suae in Historiam Institutionis S.S. Coenae Dominicae: adversus Animadversiones Ludovici Cappelli" (1646), which sharply criticizes Cappellus' "Historiam Institutionis S.S. Coenae Dominicae" for siding with Joseph Scaliger's "Emendatione Temporum." Published in 1583, "Emendatione Temporum" makes clear that the Last Supper described in the Synoptic Gospels must actually have been superimposed on a normal Passover. His arguments evidently excited many Calvinist readers, including Johann Buxtorf the Younger. - "Tractatus de punctorum origine, antiquitate, et authoritate, oppositus Arcano puntationis revelato Ludovici Cappelli" (1648). In this work, the author defends the authenticity of the vocalization "JEHOVAH," the four-letter Hebrew name for God ("Yahweh"). The book was written to defend and elaborate upon a similar book by his father, Johannes Buxtorf Sr., entitled "Tiberias, sive Commentarius Masoreticus" (1620 and 1664), arguing against Elias Levita's view of the late origin of the Hebrew vowel points.Vellum age-toned, slightly darkened, and with minor abrasions.

Minor to moderate age-toning throughout. Text in Latin. Binding in overall good, interior in good to very good condition. Johannes Buxtorf the Younger (1599 -1664) was the son of scholar Johannes Buxtorf, and a Protestant Christian Hebraist. Bookseller Inventory # 41140
