Johannes Buxtorf (the Elder) was a 17th century Christian Hebraist, a professor of Hebrew in Basel for 39 years at Basel sometimes known as, "Master of the Rabbis." As a leading Christian Hebraist he was largely responsible for transforming Hebrew studies into an established academic discipline in the early1600s. He was succeeded by his son, Johannes Buxtorf the Younger, who also became a respected scholar. SUBJECT(S): Concordances. Early works. Bible. Old Testament -- Daniel -- Concordances, Aramaic. Ezra. OCLC: 32206577. One clasp lacks metal clip (as often found), though one is fully functional. Wear to boards and spine as expected, especially at bottom 1 inch of spine and corners. But tooled leather and raised spines remain dramatic, and 17th Century rag paper is strong and bright. A striking copy! (Rab-67-2).
