EDWARDS, JOHN. An Enquiry Into Four Remarkable Texts of the New Testament Which contain Some Difficulty in them: With a Probable Resolution Of them. By John Edwards, B.D. sometime Fellow of St Johns College in Cambridge. I Cor. 13.9. We know in part, and we prophesie in part. Cambridge, Printed by J. Hayes, Printer to the University; for W. Graves Bookseller there. 1692. Small octavo, 12 x 17.1 x 2.7cm. $200.00

John Edwards 1637-1716, "one of the strongest Calvinistic divines the Church of England has produced... In 1653 he entered St. John's College, Cambridge, where he became scholar and fellow. He was minister of Trinity Church, Cambridge in 1679, and there wrote industriously on controversial theology... 'It may be questioned whether, since the days of Calvin himself, there has existed a more decided Calvinist than Dr. Edwards. He has been termed the Paul, the Augustine, the Bradwardline, the Calvin of his age. Such was the abhorrence of Arminianism, that he contended with the old Puritans, that there is a close connection between it and popery.'"--McClintock & Strong: Cyclopedia of Biblical, Theological and Ecclesiastical Knowledge, III:63.

Edwards' An Enquiry into Four Remarkable Texts... was published in 1692 (1st & only edition). In it he treats of four problem passages in the NT: Matt. 2:23 (He shall be called a Nazarene). I Cor. 11:14 (Doth not even nature it self teach you, that if a man have long hair it is a shame unto him?). I Cor. 15:29 (...what shall they do that are baptized for the sake of the dead, if the dead are not raised at all? Why are they even baptized for the sake of the dead?). I Peter 3:19-20 (By which also he went and preached unto the Spirits in prison...).

Series title: "Wilhelm Gesenius' hebraisches Elementarbuch. Erster Theil. Hebraische Grammatik... Wilhelm Gesenius (1786-1842) German Protestant Hebraist; professor at Halle. "Gesenius was the pioneer of a new era of Hebrew philology. On the basis of the great Dutch Orientalists of the eighteenth century, he divorced Hebrew linguistics from dogmatic theology, and placed the subject on the level of other linguistic sciences by a systematic comparison of cognate languages and a strictly rational method. As a lecturer he was no less influential than as an author. He was a born teacher, and knew how to make the driest subjects fascinating in their interest. Exactness of method, absorption in details, sobriety of judgment, clear presentation, and practicality were his chief characteristics. He was a student of linguistics rather than theology, and his attention was devoted to details rather than generalizations, even in the realm of Hebrew grammar."--R. Kraetzschmar in New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl. IV:478.

MILLER, JONATHAN. The Holy Scriptures the Only Instruction to the Christian Preacher. Concio ad Clerum. A Sermon Delivered in the Chapel of Yale-College, and Addressed to the Reverend Clergy, on Commencement Evening, September 9, 1812. By Jonathan Miller, A.M. Pastor of the Church in Burlington, Conn. Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel; therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.....Ezek iii 17. Published at the Request of the Clergy. New-Haven: Printed for Howe & Deforest. J. Barber, Printer. 1812. Octavo, 14.5 x 23.3cm. $40.00

Jonathan Miller (1761-1831) longtime pastor of the Congregational church in Burlington, Conn. "On July 3rd, 1783, the church was formally organized by twenty-six persons entering into a covenant of church fellowship, and on November 26th, 1783, the meeting-house being ready for occupancy, the church organized and the pastor called. Mr. Miller was ordained to the pastorate by the Rev. Messrs. Samuel Newell of New Cambridge, Timothy Pitkin of Farmington, John Smalley of New Britain, and four other ministers. He had graduated from Yale College in the class of 1781, and was twenty-two years old on the day of his ordination." "...in December, 1782, we find the vote 'that the Committee should apply to Mr. Jonathan Miller to Preach til the parish order other ways.' He continued to preach to the people, evidently to their great satisfaction, during that Spring, and in May they invited him to settle with them in the ministry. They offered him, after some negotiation, a salary which began at £60, but was to increase until it should be £80 per year. They also gave him a settlement of £200, which I think was paid by building for him the house"--Burlington Connecticut Historical Address Delivered by Epaphroditus Peck at the Centennial Celebration , June 16, 1906. Printed and Published by The Bristol Press Publ. Co., Bristol. Conn.

NEANDER, AUGUSTUS. The Epistle of James, Practically Explained, By Dr. Augustus Neander. Translated from the German by Mrs. H.C. Conant. "Why call ye me Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?" New York: Published by Lewis Colby, 122 Nassau Street. 1852. (c1851). 12mo, 12.7 x 19cm.

Bound in publisher's blind-stamped brown cloth with gilt lettering on spine, frayed spine ends consolidated with flexible book adhesive, light foxing.

Johann August Wilhelm Neander, 1789-1850, church historian. "At first interested in speculative theology, he soon turned to Church history and taught this subject at Berlin from 1813 till his death... Unlike Mosheim, whose interest was in institutions, Neander paid most attention to person, and made it his aim to discover in Church history the interpenetration of human life by the Divine. A convinced Protestant, though eirenic in temper, he regarded outward ordinances, esp. the priesthood, as dangerous to Christian simplicity."--Cross: Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church (1963), p.942. Neander was born David Mendel and of Jewish descent but upon his conversion to Christianity and baptism on Feb. 15, 1806 he took the name of Neander which means "New-man." "His personal influence upon his students was very great. He presents the figure of a man of simple and childlike spirit...full of love and gentleness toward others, and wholly and unreservedly devoted to the Lord... Among those who contributed to the revival of faith and theology in the first half of this century [19th] he has, beyond dispute, one of the most prominent places, perhaps the most prominent if practical results be considered."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. of Religious Knowledge, VIII:96. Neander wrote commentaries on Philippians, James and I John.

We offer the first English translation of his commentary on the Epistle of James.

Johann August Wilhelm Neander, 1789-1850, church historian. "At first interested in speculative theology, he soon turned to Church history and taught this subject at Berlin from 1813 till his death... Unlike Mosheim, whose interest was in institutions, Neander paid most attention to person, and made it his aim to discover in Church history the interpenetration of human life by the Divine. A convinced Protestant, though eirenic in temper, he regarded outward ordinances, esp. the priesthood, as dangerous to Christian simplicity."--Cross: Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church (1963), p.942. Neander was born David Mendel and of Jewish descent but upon his conversion to Christianity and baptism on Feb. 15, 1806 he took the name of Neander which means "New-man." "His personal influence upon his students was very great. He presents the figure of a man of simple and childlike spirit...full of love and gentleness toward others, and wholly and unreservedly devoted to the Lord... Among those who contributed to the revival of faith and theology in the first half of this century [19th] he has, beyond dispute, one of the most prominent places, perhaps the most prominent if practical results be considered."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. of Religious Knowledge, VIII:96. Neander wrote commentaries on Philippians, James and I John.

Preceptoriu[m] Nycolai de Lyra: siue Expositio tripharia p[er]utilis,, NICOLAS DE LYRE
17 NICOLAS DE LYRE Preceptoriu[m] Nycolai de Lyra: siue Expositio tripharia p[er]utilis,
1502 Book Small octavo 9.6 x 13cm. Cologne 
Preceptorium Nicolas de Lyre, Cologne, 1502. Peter Christian Kierkegaard's copy (the brother of Søren).

NICOLAS DE LYRE, or HENRICUS DE FRIMARIA. Preceptoriu[m] Nycolai de Lyra: siue Expositio tripharia p[er]utilis, in decalogu[m] legis diuine: cu[m] multis pulcerrimis tractatulis... Dec decimis tribuendis. De duodecim articulis fidei. De septem peccatis mortalibus. De triplici modo peccandi in deum. Den operibus misericordie. De natiutiate, vita [et] morte Antichristi. De minde mundei et extrem iudico. Exhortationes faciende infirmo morie[n]ti. Dyalogus Anselmi... Bernardus de planctu bte[n] Marie virginis. Colloquium peccatiris et Crucifixi. Dyalogus Isidori de hominie [et] ratione. Utiles doctrine pro lucrandis animab[us]. [from colophon:] Colonie retro fratres Minores Anno dominice geniture. M.ccccii. [1502] [Matrin von Werden] Small octavo 9.6 x 13cm. $2,250.00

The printer's name is not mentioned, but it is likely the work of Martin von Werden. The Retro Minores press operated from 31 July 1497 to 1504. Proctor attributed the work of this press to Martin Von Werden. BMC, however, suggests that, as the Retro Minores used three of Heinrich Quentell's types and 2 of the same woodcuts, it might have been a branch of Quentell's business. However, following the custom of the time, Quentell and Zel each gave the location of their shop as retro fratres, behind the friars, and identified themselves as the printer. Books printed by von Werden between 1498 and 1506 do not bear his name. However, they do indicate they were produced at the same location as that used by Quentell and Zel, or, as is the case with this book, retro fratres Minores, behind the friars minor. After 1506, von Werden indicated both the location and his name. Von Werden used the same typed as Quentell and Zel, and reprinted woodcuts which originally appeared in their books.

The book has been attributed to Nicolas of Lyra (1270-1349). In modern times it has been assigned it to Henry of Friemar, circa 1245-1340 (Cf. Buchberger.Lexicon f. Theol. u. Kirche. 2nd ed.). Nicolas of Lyra had the greater reputation and is known as one of the great Biblical exegetes. He emphasized the literal meaning of scripture and his work was a strong influence on Luther. Nicholas was a Franciscan.

Henry of Friemar belonged to the same order as Luther, the Order of Hermits of St. Augustine. He was master in theology at the Univ. of Paris. Later he moved to schools at Prague in Saxony, ending his career as Provincial for his order in Thuringia and Saxony.

There are a few notations in the text, and two signatures. The signature at the bottom of A1, the title, appears to be that of P[eter] Chr[istian] Kierkegaard, and the numbers following represent the date of his acquisition of the book, March 20, 1831. Peter Christian (1805-1888) was born eight years before his more famous brother Søren, and outlived him by thirty-three years. He was decidedly more conventional in religious matters, serving as the Lutheran Bishop of Alborg for 18 years. He preached the eulogy at his brother's funeral in 1855.

The signature at the top of the first woodcut, A1v, is that of Friedrich Münter, 1761-1830. He is best known as an orientalist and archeologist. Münter was professor of theology at the Univ. of Copenhagen from 1790-1808. He left there to become Bishop of Denmark.

Over thirty spaces left for rubricated initial letters, which were never filled in. OCLC shows no copies of the 1502 edition in the U.S. but does locate two in Germany and one in Netherlands.

Justus Olshausen (1800-1882) Orientalist. "Olshausen's well-founded reputation, both for unusual linguistic ability and for sterling character, procured him the position of extraordinary professor of oriental languages at the university of Kiel. In 1830, he became ordinary professor and continued in the university until 1848... From Konigsberg, where he had become ordinary professor of oriental languages and chief librarian, he accepted in 1858, a call to Berlin as ministerial councilor, and until 1874 superintended the Prussian universities... Since 1829 Olshausen, by his many and continuous contributions to the textual criticism of the Old Testament, has, as Schrader rightly says, 'opened a new path for exegetical and critical research.' His theory that most of the mistakes in the text were to be sought in the consonants and not in the vowels still deserves serious consideration... His greatest effort is without doubt his excellent Lehrbuch der hebraischen Sprache (Brunswick, 1861), which contains, in the first book, the phonetics, and from page 170 the paradigms. Unfortunately the third book, to be devoted to the syntax, has not appeared. Sachau calls this grammar a book that marks an epoch in the history of oriental philology, and Noldeke terms it a very commendable work, although Olshausen in this book has carried to an extreme his view that Arabic represented very closely the primitive Semitic language."--A. Kamphausen in New Schaff-Herzg Ency. Rel. Knowl., VIII:238-239. We are pleased to offer the First edition of his Lehrbuch der hebräischen Sprache. (15839)

Edward Pocock (Pococke) (1604-1691) Orientalist, professor of Arabic at Oxford, 1636-40; was in Constantinople to seek for manuscripts, 1637-40... "He was one of the foremost orientalists in his day. His works are numerous and valuable. His Theological Works were first published with a Life by the editor, Leonard Twells (2 vols., London, 1740). They embrace Porta Mosis (a Latin translation of Maimonides' six discourses prefatory to his commentary upon the Mishna, 1655), Commentaries on Hosea (1685), Joel (1691), Micah and Malachi (1677), and a Latin treatise upon ancient weights and measures. The commentaries formed part of Fell's projected commentary upon the entire Old Testament. They are heavy and prolix, but learned. Pocock took a prominent part in Walton's Polyglot, furnished the collations of the Arabic Pentateuch, and was consulted by Walton at every step."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl. IX:99. Spurgeon quotes: "Orme says Pocock was 'one of the finest Oriental scholars, and certainly the first Arabic scholar of his age.' His book is a treasury filled with the products of laborious research."--Commenting & Commentaries p190.
