About this Item
Leusden, Johannes, 1624-1699. Philologus Hebraeus : in quo pleraeque quaestiones generales philologico-Hebraicae, concernentes textum Hebraeum Veteris Test. dilucidè pertractantur : in sine adjunctus est catalogus Hebraicus & Latinus sexcentorum & tredecim praeceptorum, in quae totus. 1657. 8vo, original vellum, nice condition save for some general light soiling and the vellum boards are showing some curl. Copy with late 18th century signature of "EX-LIBRIS MARSHALL". An old dealer has indicated the book is form the library of the famed chief Justice John Jay Marshall, which I am not able to confirm or deny. "Among the prominent Dutch Hebraists and theologians was Johannes Leusden, from the University of Utrecht. One of his most important studies, the Philologus Hebrĉus (editio princeps, Utrecht, 1656), goes far beyond a philological research of the Hebrew language and is a comprehensive study of Judaism and Jewish life. " An entire chapter is devoted alone to Kabbalah and the Kabbalists. For those interested in bibliography, there is a pioneering section detailing the known surviving manuscripts of the Bible. Leusden also edited very important editions of the Hebrew Bible including the fames 1661 Athias edition. The team of the Christian Leusden and the Jewish Athias resulted in the attraction of both a strong Jewish and Gentile clientele and very successful publishing venture. Seller Inventory # 000425
