About this Item

8vo. 648 pp., Black paper-covered boards. Two title pages, one in Hebrew, one in Italian. Pages 3 to 11 in Hebrew, pages 12-648 bilingual, Hebrew and Italian. Samuel David Luzzatto was born in Trieste 1800 and died in Padua 1865. In his childhood he entered the Talmud Torah of his native city, where besides Talmud, in which he was taught by Abraham Eliezer ha-Levi, chief rabbi of Trieste and a distinguished pilpulist, he studied ancient and modern languages and science under Mordechai de Cologna, Leon Vita Saraval, and Raphael Baruch Segré, whose son-in-law he later became. He studied the Hebrew language also at home with his father, who, though a turner by trade, was an eminent Talmudist. Luzzatto maintained that the whole book Isaiah was written by Isaiah. In spite of the prevalent opinion that chapters 40-66 were written after the Babylonian captivity he felt that one of the factors that pushed scholars to postdate the latter portion of the book stemmed from a denial of the possibility of prophetic prediction of distant-future events, and therefore was a heretical position. Text in Hebrew and Italian. Front cover detached but present, spine is missing. Block starting at page 435 with age-toning due to different paper. Binding in overall poor, interior in good condition.
