About this Item

Sole edition: Edited by theologian Johann Gerhard Meuschen (1680?1743), this volume presents a prominent Christian Hebraist's analysis of alleged Talmudic references to Jesus and the New Testament, accompanied by a variety of contemporary writings similarly focused on how Jewish texts could shed light on the New Testament. In addition to Balthasar Scheidt (1614?70), professor of Oriental languages at the University of Strasbourg, also represented here are Johann Andreas Dantz (a.k.a. Danz or Dans, 1654?1727), Herman Wits, and Jakob Rhenferd (1654?1712); the largest part of the volume, including several treatises on Jewish baptismal rites, is by Dantz, professor of Hebrew and theology at Jena, noted for his strictly Christological interpretation of the Old Testament. The title-page here is in red and black, sporting an engraved title vignette. Ornamented with woodcut head- and tailpieces (the latter repeated once) and a few woodcut initials, the primarily Latin text incorporates numerous quotations printed in Hebrew, several in Greek, three in Arabic, and one in Syriac; the sole German quotation is printed in black-letter. Provenance: Bookplate of Johann Christian Wilhelm Diederichs (1750?81), a philosopher and professor of Oriental languages at G?ttingen and K?nigsberg, laid in along with those of two seminaries (plates formerly affixed to front pastedown). Front fly-leaf and one page each with an inked annotation in the same 18th-century hand, possibly Diederichs'. 4to (21.4 cm, 8.4"). [30], 736, 735?39, 737?1216, [96] pp. Recent speckled paper?covered boards, spine with printed paper label; title-page with faded 19th-century institutional rubber-stamp and bottom edges with another stamp, lower outer portion of Diederichs bookplate partially torn away. Two leaves each with small paper flaw, one marginal, one affecting a few letters without loss of sense; a few corners dog-eared. Pages gently age-toned with minor to moderate offsetting and occasional slight spotting; first and last few leaves with margins browned by offsetting from old binding. Two early inked annotations as above, and a scattered handful of small inked text corrections. => A thick, sturdy, fistful of a book. Bookseller Inventory # 31721
