Vienna: Adalbert Della Torre, 1858. Later edition. Hardcover. Quarto. Complete 2 volume set. 508 leaves, (4) leaves, 377 leaves. Exquisite contemporary red leather with gold-pressed illustration on the covers and spine of an ark and the Ten Commandments. Old Testament-Tanach with the original Hebrew and Judeo-German translation in parallel columns. Both sides use a square Hebrew print and contain nikkudot vowels. The Judeo-German is not Moses Mendelssohn's well-known Biur translation, but a transliteration of the famous German translation of the Bible produced by Martin Luther. This edition of the Old Testament was published as a missionary tool by the British and Foreign Bible Society and designed for use by Central European Jews. The books of the Old Testament are organized mostly according to the Jewish tripartite arrangement of Pentateuch, Prophets and Hagiography, although the 5 megillot are moved to the end of vol. 1, following Kings II. Additionally, in between the Pentateuch and Prophets sections, are 4 leaves with a detailed listing of the weekly and special Haftorah readings. While there are no obvious indications that this Bible was intended to promote conversion, the title-pages contain the verse from Proverbs 8:35, “for whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord,” which has overt Christological meaning. Binding in fine condition. Slight foxing to pages. Overall in good+ condition. g. Item #33985
