About this Item

12mo. 5pp. (12). 544pp. 3/4 vellum over decorated paper-covered boards with brown handwritten lettering to spine. Scuffing, abrasions and discoloration to boards and spine. All maroon page edges. 2 Ex libris- plates pasted-in on front endpaper: 1) Ex libris Rev. Joseph Jaquett. Presented by Edwin Jaquett Sellers. 1902. 2) Library of the Protestant Episcopal Divinity School, Philadelphia. Perforation to title page: "Philadelphis Divinity School." Signature and date to title page: "Joseph Jaquette. June 20th. 1825." Some age browning and welling to pages not affecting text. Magnificent translation of one of the tracates of the "Mishne Torah," a code of Jewish law by one of the most important Jewish authorities, Rabbi Moshe ben Maimon, better known as Maimonides or by the Hebrew abbreviation RaMBaM (1135-1204). The Mishneh Torah was compiled between 1170 and 1180, while he was living in Egypt, and is regarded as Maimonides' magnum opus. This tractate deals with the "Parah aduma" or red cow aka red heifer, a cow that is sacrificed and whose ashes are used for the ritual purification of people who came into contact with a corpse. In Hebrew and Latin. Overall in good condition. R. Moses Maimonides (Rambam) was a 12th century Jewish philosopher and halachic legal scholar. A highly controversial figure, both during his lifetime and after his death, but generally acknowledged as the preeminent Jewish thinker of the Middle Ages. He was born in Córdoba, Spain but fled as a child from the Almohad persecution. He eventually settled in Egypt where he served as a rabbi, physician and philosopher. His fourteen-volume Mishneh Torah, his only work not in Arabic, still carries canonical authority, particularly within the Yemenite Jewish community, as the codification of Talmudic law. His other work includes a commentary on the Mishnah entitled Kitab al-Siraj, Kitab al-Fara'I, a book on precepts, and the philosophical work Dalalat al-Ha'irin, known in Hebrew as the Moreh Nevukhim, The Guide to the Perplexed. The major premise is an attempted philosophical/theological reconciliation of the Hebrew Bible and Greek knowledge. This work came to play a central role in all subsequent major controversies over philosophy within the Jewish community during the Middle Ages. Bookseller Inventory # 14102
