About this Item

First edition of a collection of essays concerning the linguistic style of the New Testament; among them is Pfochenius's Diatribe de Linguae Graecae Novi Testamenti Puritate, the earliest printed treatise on the purity of its Greek style (1629). A preface by German orientalist Jacob Rhenferd (1654?1712), professor at Franeker (the Netherlands' second oldest university, until it was disbanded by Napoleon in 1811), outlines both the major tenets of his argument and the opposing arguments by Johannes Cocceius, Thomas Gataker, and others who identified Hebraisms. This is in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, with sidenotes, scattered woodcut initials, and a few woodcut tailpieces; an engraved allegorical vignette signed J.G. graces the title-page. 4to (19.9 cm, 7.8"). [xvii] ff., 678 [i.e. 724], [44] pp. For the history of printed treatises on this subject at Franeker, see: L. Fuks and R.G. Fuks-Mansfeld, Hebrew Typography in the Northern Netherlands, 1585?1815. Contemporary vellum over boards (rubbed and lightly scuffed); spine with morocco label (rubbed and faded) and old library sticker, boards double-ruled in blind with a blind-embossed central cartouche. Interior age-toned with occasional thumb-soiling, minor stains, and one negligible hole from an ink spot; two old institutional bookplates, pressure-stamp to title-page (and publication date changed to 1702, MDCCII, by adding another "I" in early ink), lower edges with rubber-stamp, librarian's pencilled shelf-marks to verso of title-page and neatly inked five-digit number to bottom of next leaf. => A solid, handsome volume.
