Die göttlichen Schriften vor den Zeiten - Bible. O.T. Pentateuch. German. 1735 - 1735. [1381082]
Johann Georg Nehr, 1735. First edition of an exceedingly controversial annotated German translation of the Pentateuch. Johann Lorenz Schmidt, a Protestant dissident theologian, here attempted to provide a free translation with commentary in an objective, rational spirit; his work was denounced for naturalistic, Socinian, and anti-typological tendencies as soon as it was published, and Schmidt was arrested in 1737. The printing was handsomely done: the large, clear black-letter text is illustrated with a total of => 13 copperplate vignettes (including Adam and Eve along with other textually appropriate scenes), most signed by Martin Tyroff. Although the present volume was intended to be the first portion of a complete Bible translation, no more was ever published. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate fewer than a dozen copies in U.S. libraries. Provenance: Ex-Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School library (properly deaccessioned).
