About this Item

Two volumes in one. 12mo, pp. xii, 332, (1); (3) 348. Engraved frontispiece in each volume. Bound in little worn contemporary French calf, spine gilt. A very good clean copy. Querard I, p. 2. Rare, not in OCLC. OCLC does list another book by the author, a poem on Jeanne D'Arc showing one location at the Library of Congress. We have not been able to find out anything about the author; but the story comes from the Bibical story of Jephte which is narrated in chapters 11 and 12 of the Book of Judges. Jephte is offered the position of Prince of the Hebrews but first he must conquer the Ammonites. He prays to God for help and offers as a sacrifice, the first person who comes out of his house to greet his victorious arrival. After his victory, it is his only daughter, Seila, who is the first to greet him and Jephte keeps his promise. Bookseller Inventory # 24100
