S. Johannis Apostoli & Evangelistae Epistolae Catholicae Tres, Arabicae & Aethiopicae. Omnes ad verbum in Latinum versae, cum vocalium figuris exacte appositis. Cura ac industria Johann. Georgii Nisselii & Theodori Petraei.
Leiden: Ex officina Johannis & Danielis Elsevier 1654 - first leaf sometime mounted on a stub leaving a stain in gutter, portion of blank margin of one leaf torn away (clear of text), a bit of staining and brittleness in gutters, some minor spotting elsewhere, frequent learned notes in a later hand, pp. 40, 4to, modern marbled boards, sound Nissel and Petreius’s edition of the text of the Epistles of St John in Arabic and Ethiopic, each with translations into Latin. An owner of this copy, a student of Arabic sometime in the mid-nineteenth century (he references Freytag’s Lexicon Arabico-Latinum of 1835 but not Lane’s of 1863-93), has read it closely with his pen handy, and every page features notes on vocabulary and grammar with lemmas transcribed in Arabic and meanings given in Latin or English (and once some Hebrew). On the leaf following the title, which gives a Hebrew proverb, an extensive note discusses its meaning and quotes Luke 6:22 as a contrast. (Willems 750; Rahir 755; D&M 3564)
