Die göttlichen Schriften vor den Zeiten des Messie Jesus. Der erste Theil worinnen die Gesetze der Israelen enthalten sind nach einer freyen Ubersetzung welche durch und durch mit Anmerkungen erläutert und bestätiget wird.
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).
