[Only Ed.] A. Wolf
Schmidbauer & Holzwarth
This listing is an independent item not part of any collection
Only edition. 32 pp., octavo, 220:140 mm., wide margins, light age staining, stamps. A very good copy bound in later half cloth and marbled paper over boards. Rare - no copy in major collections.
Five sermons by R. A. Wolf. The full title is Eine Auswahl eregetischer Vorträge zur religiösen Belehrung und Erbaung (A selection of lectures of religious instruction and edification). The title page has a quote, “It shall blossom abundantly, and rejoice with joy and singing; the glory of Lebanon shall be given to it” (Isaiah 35:2), from which the title (Pirhei Levanon) is inferred. There is a dedication to a Stern from the author, his introduction (5-8) and the essays. Each begins with Hebrew quotes, first from the Bible, followed by a quote from either the Talmud or a Midrash. The book begins with Die Gottesnähe (the proximity of God), followed by Die Wege Gottes (the Ways of God), Die Rathschlüss Gottes, Die wunderbare Erhaftung, and Die drei Lebensperioden (the three periods of life). The text is in Fraktur with occasional Hebrew accompanied by footnotes.
