"The work is divided into three parts: part I, Jahn's dissertation, a view of studying languages which also embraces J.D. Michaelis work; part II, Extract from Gesenius; part III, Extract from Wyttenbach; with note by the translator."--OCLC Moses Stuart (1780-1852) American Hebraist & Biblical scholar, professor of sacred literature in Andover Theological Seminary 1810-1848. "His first literary work was a Hebrew grammar, which was circulated among the students in manuscript because it was not possible to print Hebrew in this country at that time; when it was finally printed (1813), he was compelled himself to set up part of the type for lack of compositors equipped for the task; later editions long remained the textbooks for American students. To America he brought the knowledge of what was being done for Biblical scholarship in Germany, and thus founded in America the scientific study of Biblical archeology and linguistics. For his services in this department he has been called `the father of American Biblical literature.'"--New Schaff-Herzog Ency Rel. Knowl., XI:116. In a series of elaborate commentaries he showed how German scholarship had revolutionized the field of Biblical studies.
