'Aseret had-devarim 'im pêrûs. Decalogus praeceptorum divinorum [...] unde iuventus non tam in Hebraismo qum pietate proficere poterit.
8vo. (64) pp. With woodcut printer's device on verso of final leaf. Bound with numerous blank leaves. Contemporary vellum.
First edition. "Decalogue with the commentary of Aben Esra [...]. Leaves d7-d8 contain the Aramaic text of the Ten Commandments [...]. Re-issued in 1559 by Sebastian Lepusculus" (cf. Burmeister, pp. 11; 111). The "synoptic word-for-word translations" of Biblical texts which Münster published during his Heidelberg years is a characteristic of his scheme of a "Propagatio linguae sanctae", to spread the knowledge of Hebrew at German universities (cf. Burmeister, p. 11).
Occasional insignificant waterstaining. Old ms. ownership of the Vienna Jesuits to title page; stamps of Vienna University Library and of Kubasta & Voigt, Vienna (c. 1900).
