by Norberg, Matthias.
Lund: Berlingian ("Literis Berlingianis"), 1816-17. First edition. Acceptable/In 1815, the Swedish orientalist Matthias Norberg was the first to publish a critical edition of a Syriac text called "the Book of Adam." That text was drawn from the scripture of the Mandaean people, of what is now the southern Iraq. Norberg complimented his edition of the Book of Adam with this pair of companion volumes: an extensively annotated lexicon of the Mandaic-Syriac text, and an onomasticon (a dictionary of names). Norberg defines each term and frequently draws connections to its Hebrew, Arabic, and Aramaic cognates.. Quarto (22 cm); 274, , 164 pages. Text in Latin and Syriac, with Hebrew and Aramaic. Bound in calf over marbled boards, quite worn, with cracked joints, worn edges, crown perished, surface abrasions, yet casing holds and contents are clean and unblemished. Bookplate of the German Orientalist Emil Rödiger, with his autograph on blank leaf opposite title page. (Inventory #: 5668)
