Description:
Pure
COLLECTIBLE! An amazingly well preserved almost as new 409 page rare hardback! This monumental volume was first published in Hebrew in Jerusalem in 1951 & this first English edition was published in 1967. Online comments: "The last of the commentaries rendered into English, this Cassuto's work ranks among the finest modern contributions to the treasury of Biblical learning." 'Umberto Cassuto's comments have a vivid quality seldom found in the exegetical writings of other Biblical expositors, who all too often prefer a jejune and lifeless approach to their subject, however he succeeds in injecting a sense of dramatic excitement into his interpretations. Without neglecting the scientific data provided by archaeological and philological research, he makes us conscious of the literary attributes of the Bible. This present work does not separate the annotations from the Biblical text, but forms a continuous, unified commentary in which the Scriptural citations are interlinked with the exposition.'… Read More

Description:
London: Massada Press, 1939. Original Wrappers. Very Good. 8vo .. 20pp . THE JEWISH RESPONSE (of the JEWISH AGENCY FOR PALESTINE) to the British Government's publication of the " McMahon Letters " published earlier the same month (March 16th, 1939). The McMahon Letters include the correspondence between Sir Henry McMahon (His Majesty's High Commissioner in Egypt) and Hussein Sharif of Mecca between 1915 and 1916 and represent a series of letters that were exchanged during World War I in which the British government agreed to recognize Arab independence after the war in exchange for Hussein's launching the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire. These alleged promises to the Arab side given before the later BALFOUR DECLARATION OF 1917 were therefore considered by the supporters of the JEWISH CAUSE as being without legal validity. THIS VERY RARE PUBLICATION includes among its documents a STATEMENT BY MCMAHON, that the area in which Arab independence was promised DID… Read More
