[10], 352pp (Lyra Prophetica Davidis Regis); [2], 69, [1]pp (Index Libri Psalmorum); 46pp (Lingua eruditorum; sive Methodica Institutio Linguae Sanctae & Brevis et Perspicua Institutio Linguae Chaldaicae). Original full calf. Paste-in engraved b/w portrait of religious Jew to front endpaper, captioned: "Henry Simons the Polish Jew."* Pasted-in biographical entries on Ninian Wirt Edwards and Eli Todd. Title page in red and black lettering. Originally published in 1650, Victorinus Bythner's "Lyra Prophetica Davidis Regis" is a brilliant grammatical analysis of the vocabulary of the 150 Hebrew psalms contained in the Book of Psalms.Binding heavily rubbed. Front board detached, crudely repaired by torn tan cloth. Corners bumped and worn. Free front endpaper inscribed by previous owner. Black color staining to title page, not affecting text. Upper right corner of title page chipped, not affecting text. Some browning and sporadic foxing to pages, not affecting text. Welling to pages. In Hebrew and Latin. Binding in poor, interior in good condition. * On Henry Simons: He was a Polish Jew (presumably Zevi Hirsch ben Simeon) almost entirely ignorant of English, who fell among thieves while traveling in the US in 1751 and alleged that he had been robbed of a belt of money--an episode which led to a series of prosecutions for theft, libel and perjury, at the close of which he was handsomely vindicated in the Courts of Law. For some reason or other, the case seized on the popular imagination, and several pamphlets were issued on the one side or the other in connexion with it. The witnesses on Simon's behalf included Naphtali Franks, "the great rich Jew", Lazarus Simon, the Overseer of the Poor (Gabbai Zedakah) of the Synagogue and Meyer Polack, Clerk of the Synagogue, who once gave him half a guinea out of the poor-box, and at another time sixpence out of his own pocket. Naturally, the affair was closely followed in Duke's Place, from which many of the witnesses on Simon's behalf came. In particular, feelings ran high against a certain Jacob Abrahams (a native of Wintzenheim in Alsace, and accordingly known in London as "Wants-money"!) who had given evidence on the other side.
