ROYAL FOLIO. PRINTED 1575. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT HEBREW GRAMMARS EVER COMPILED AND AT THE DISPOSAL OF THE TRANSLATORS OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE From the esteemed 18th century library of Thomas Peckitt, himself the author of Hebrew Grammar and other theological works, with his fine bookplate and signature. It should be noted that this is a very important volume in the Biblical Studies; The Trinitarian Bible Society in their April - June 1979 Quarterly Record cites this volume as being at the disposal of the translators for the KING JAMES BIBLE. The Book: Pagninus, "Thesaurus Linguæ Sanctæ", Lugduni, 1575. Large Folio Orginal soft calf with blindstamping, sympathetically rebacked, internally clean. From the famed library of Henry Peckitt, well known 18th century scriptural scholar with his siganture and handsome bookplate. Pagninus was perhaps the greatest of Christian Lexicographers and whose work was fundamental as an aid to 16th-century scriptural translators. A highly important work, only one copy of this 1575 edition in 30 years of auction records and that copy was a very poor one lacking a leaf. (A Finer 1548 Edition of this work Christies June 26, 1996, lot 113 $9240.00) As a measure if Pagninus' importance, it should be noted that that the first printed Bible divided into verses was an Old Testament Latin edition by Pagninus. Size: Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000429b
