Safah Berurah

Furth: Fulda and Zumfdorffer, 1839. Hardcover. 8vo. 52 pages. Rebound? in quarter cloth black paper covered boards. A Hebrew grammar book discussing the roles of the letters. Ibn Ezra is considered the father of Hebrew grammar, even though he did not create anything new, he collected the conclusions of early grammarians and he wrote in Hebrew making Hebrew grammer more accessable. This work, not the first grammer book written by Ibn Ezra, was the result of a student asking him to do so. This was orginally written between 1146-1147. This editon contains the commentary Mevin Safah by Gabriel Hirsch Lippmann, introduction in German and the novella Sha'ar Binyamin, published here for the first time, a work by Abraham Benjamin Hamburg (1770-1850), German talmudic scholar, whose disciples include Moses Sofer and Seligmann-Baer Bamberger.
