The first complete Hebrew Bible edited by the Christian scholar Sebastian Muenster, the eminent German Hebraist, geographer, and mathematician. The text, based mainly on the first Biblia Rabbinica, was printed in a Hebrew Latin edition at Basel in 1534, 1535, and "exercised considerable influence on versions made by the Reformers, e.g. in Switzerland, and on the English translation known as 'the Great Bible'." Darlow and Moule 5087 note. Friedberg T115.; Cowley 76; Adams B1220. This is the first appearance of Sebastian Muenster¿s famed Bible edition presented in Hebrew only. At the end is the order of the Haftarot, so clearly it was meant to be used by Jews. 999 + 180 + [16] pages. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
