        hamisha humshey Torah Khamisha Khumshey Tora Pentateuch Five Books of Moses

      Kashman ben Yosef Baruch, Amsterdam, Holland 1769 - 1, 140, 23 leaves. Also includes The Five Scrolls or The Five Megillot, Hamesh Megillot, which are parts of the Ketuvim ("Writings"), the third major section of the Tanakh (The Bible). The Five Scrolls are the Song of Songs, the Book of Ruth, the Book of Lamentations, Ecclesiastes and the Book of Esther. These five relatively short biblical books are grouped together in Jewish tradition. All five of these megillot ("scrolls") are traditionally read publicly in the synagogue over the course of the year in many Jewish communities. In common printed editions of the Tanakh they appear in the order that they are read in the synagogue on holidays (beginning with Passover). The Song of Songs (Hebrew: Shir ha-Shirim) is read publicly in some communities, especially by Ashkenazim, on the Sabbath of Passover. In most Eastern Jewish communities it is read publicly each week at the onset of the Shabbat (Sabbath). There is also a widespread custom to read it at the end of the Passover Seder. Italian Jews read it at the Maariv (Evening Prayer) of the first and second day of Passover. The Book of Ruth is read in some communities, especially by Ashkenazim, before the reading of the Torah on the morning of Shavuot. Others read it in the Tikkun at night, or not at all. The Book of Lamentations (Hebrew: Eikhah or Kinnot) is read on the Ninth of Av in all Jewish communities. Ecclesiastes (Hebrew: Kohelet) is read publicly in some communities, especially by Ashkenazim, on the Sabbath of Sukkot. In other communities it is not read at all. The Book of Esther is read in all Jewish communities on Purim. The public reading is done twice, on the evening of Purim and once again the next morning. When read in the synagogue, these five books are sung with cantillation. In most communities, Esther is the only book accompanied by blessings before and after. But certain communities adopted the custom of the Vilna Gaon to recite blessings before the other four megillot as well. As indicated above, however, only two of the megillot are traditionally read in all Jewish communities, Esther on Purim and Lamentations on the Ninth of Av. The practice of reading the other three books on the Three Pilgrimage Festivals is widespread but by no means universal. To read them is a venerable custom among Ashkenazim, but many Sephardic Jews do not associate the three books with the three festivals. The association is thus weaker also among Hasidic Jews who were influenced by Sephardic customs.

        O Uraguay Poema

      Famous landmark of Brazilian literature, a splendid copy. 1769. Regia Officina Typografica. In 8vo (162 mm x 102 mm). 1 [blank] + 3 ff. + 102 + 1 ff. + 1 [blank]. Splendid contemporary red morocco gilt, spine flat, boards with intense tooling within double gilt fillets, centre and corner pieces, a bit soiled, just with minor traces of rubbing. A fine copy, in entirely genuine condition, wide margins, lightly foxed.First edition. O Uraguay is a considerable achievement of Brazilian literature. It is of political nature, arguing in favour of Pombal?s actions against the Jesuits following the 1750 Madrid Treaty between the Spanish and Portuguese Crowns, which transferred the Jesuit Reductions of Paraguay to Brazil; it "was a political poem defending Pombal's action against the Jesuit reductions. After the Minister fell from power all available copies were suppressed" (Borba de Moraes). Its rarity may be explained by ?despite it having been printed in 1036 copies- the fact that it was ordered supressed. "Talvez, com o Caramuru, o mais famoso poema epico da literatura colonial brasileira... uma das mais procuradas pelos bibliofilos entre toda a literatura colonial." (Correa do Lago).Basilio da Gama (1740 ? 1795) was a Brazilian-born poet and Jesuit. Following his father?s death, he was sent to Rio de Janeiro to study with the Society of Jesus. After the Jesuit?s expulsion from Brazil, he went to Europe, were he adopted the pseudonym Termindo Sipilio, under which he writes the present novel.Borba de Moraes, 338. Sabin, 26487.

This is the first complete translation into English of the early Roman comedies of Plautus.& & This project was begun by Thornton near the end of his life, an appropriately witty man whom Samuel Johnson found highly diverting. Thornton was inspired by the edition of the plays of Terence prepared by his friend George Coleman the elder. Two volumes appeared in 1767, just before Thornton's death; these contained 5 plays translated by Thornton himself, one by Coleman, and one by Richard Warner. In the end it was Warner, a literary scholar and botanist who undertook to complete the project; his final text, as represented here provides one of the most successful English translations from the Latin in the 18th century.& & ""Thornton's versions are held to be the best, being highly praised by Southey for their playfulness and ingenuity"" (DNB).

Containing I.: The appellative or common words II.: The proper names To which is added a concordance to the books called Apocrapha. The third edition, with some improvements

      A, Cruden, J. Buckland [et al.], London 1769 - 4to, pp. [12] & unpaginated lexicon in triple column; engraved frontispiece portrait; contemporary full calf, neatly rebacked, red morocco label on spine; some spotting but generally very good and sound. A massive and respected work by a man whose "biblical labours have justly made his name a household word among the English-speaking peoples." Disappointed in his "expectation of profit from his great task his mind became so unhinged that he was confined for ten weeks in a madhouse in Bethnal Green, from which he escaped by cutting through the bedstead to which he was chained" (see DNB). The book is a landmark and remains in print to this very day.
