First Edition. *4, A4-Z4; Aa4-Zz4; Aaa4. This copy is complete and in good contemporary condition throughout internally. The title page is a bit chipped and torn but otherwise this is a very good copy. It has recently been repaired with modern vellum. A nice match for the other work about Paul the Apostle listed in our inventory, Hermann Witsi's '...Meletemata...vita et Rebus Gestis pauli Apostoli'. Only 12 libraries carry this particular edition and include: Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School, Union College, Lancaster Theological Seminary, Saint Charles Borromeo Seminary, Overbrook. The rest have only microfilm copies or reprint copies. A rare book sold by Calixbooks online. "Louis de Dieu was a Dutch Protestant minister and Orientalist, born at Flushing in 1590. In 1619 he became assistant professor in the Walloon College, Leiden. He wrote a 'Grammar of the Hebrew, Syriac, and Chaldaic Languages.' (1628), 'Rudiments of Persian Tongue,' (1639), and several commentaries on Scripture. His 'Persian Grammar' was for a long time the only one existing in Europe. De Dieu died in 1642. His father, Daniel, was an eloquent minister of Brussels and Flushing, and a good linguist.'(Thomas). In the present work, de Dieu analyzes the Apostle Paul's letter to the Romans, using the Syriac, Arabic, and Vulgate versions of the New Testament, in addition to the translations rendered by Erasmus and Beza. The book is beautifully printed throughout, using nicely executed Syriac and Arabic type. The attractive title page, although harmed and with some paper loss, is printed in red and black. The binding has been repaired but the boards are somewhat warped, otherwise a very good book. The rest of the interior of the antiquarian book is in good condition. Also it has the old tag of Thomas Clark, Law Bookseller, 58 George's Street, Edinburgh (Scotland). It is printed in Latin, Greek, Hebrew and Arabic throughout. A remarkable book of true antiquarian origins. "The remarks of the Evangelists open a series of works that Louis de Dieu consecrated to the interpreters of the writings of the saints, and notably to the oriental versions. Reunited with his Animadversiones in Acta Apostolorum, published in 1634, the Animadversiones in Epistolam ad Romanos, published in 1646, and finally, the Animadversiones in Vetus Testamentum a posthumous publication, published in 1648 by the son of the author, these form a complete commentary on the Bible, a commentary which has been reprinted in self-contained single volume under the title: 'Critica Sacra,' Amsterdam: B. Borstius, 1693, in folio." (Willems).
