He sought to simplify instructional methods and to 'take quite out of the way, those obstructing Mountains of difficultie'" (DNB). Text in English and vocalized Hebrew. Occasional mispaginations as issued, without loss; text is complete. Wing R1613. Allibone, 1824. Gift inscription dated 1903. Infrequent contemporary and later marginalia.Text occasionally trimmed a bit close, a few times affecting letters (but not the readability) of headers; expected occasional light soiling.
