Decorative head-, tailpieces, and initials. Bernard Lamy (1640-1715) was a French Oratorian mathematician and theologian. Originally published in 1696, "Apparatus biblicus" is a development of the author's "Introduction à la Lecture de l'Ecriture Sainte" (1689). In this work he calls in question the historical character of the Book of Tobias and the Book of Judith, and maintains that even after the Council of Trent a difference of authority should be recognized between the proto-canonical and deutero-canonical books of the Bible. This work examines also subjects such as the history of the Hebrews and the Holy Land, a description of the Tabernacle and Temple, a history of the scriptures, and a great many tangential matters like the plants, animals, minerals, diseases, and customs mentioned in the Bible. This book is exquisitely illustrated with 11 fine folded copper plates (2 maps; 1 plan of Jerusalem, 1 view of the Tabernacle; 1 plan of the Temple in Jerusalem; a priest with garments; a rabbi with tefillin, etc..). One folding plate shows the Greek & Hebrew alphabets. Lacking plate VI: (View of the Temple). Included, 11 full-page engraved figures depicting animals and plants mentioned in the Bible. Binding heavily rubbed on spine and along edges, with moderate and sporadic abrasion to leather. Front free endpaper partly torn and missing.

Some worming to lower fore-edge and lower margin of the last 50 leaves (not affecting text or plates). Text in Latin.
