About this Item

Octavo. XXII, 161pp (English), 59pp (Hebrew). Original blue cloth with gold lettering on spine. Berechiah ben Natronai ha-Nakdan, ("ha-Nakdan", meaning "the punctuator" or "grammarian"), commonly known as Berachya, (13th century) was a Jewish exegete, ethical writer, grammarian, translator, poet, and philosopher. His most famous works are Mishle Shualim (Fox Fables) and Sefer Hahibbur (The Book of Compilation). Very little is known for certain about his life and much discussion has taken place concerning the date and native country of Berachyah. It is possible that he was a descendant of Jewish scholars of Babylonia. He is thought to have lived sometime in the 12th or 13th century, with some placing him about 1260 in Provence. Other theories give Northern France as his home while Joseph Jacobs arrived at the conclusion that Berechiah should be located in England toward the end of the 12th century. This was confirmed by Neubauer's discovery that, in the preface to his fables, Berechiah refers to the "turning of the wheels of fate to the island of the sea [= England ] for one to die and the other to live," clearly a reference to the English massacre of 1190 (From WIKIPEDIA). Very minor age-toning on spine. Previous owner's sticker on free front endpaper (Abraham Steinmeier). Binding in overall good+ to very good, interior in very good condition.
