Description

Excerpt from The New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge, Vol. 1: Embracing Biblical, Historical, Doctrinal, and Practical Theology and Biblical, Theological, and Ecclesiastical Biography From the Earliest Times to the Present Day; Aachen-Basilians While most of the Biblical Helps are noted under the appropriate titles in the text, the following are worthy of special mention here. For the Old Testament all the books except Exodus to Deuteronomy were published in handy form in the Hebrew by G. Baer and F. Delitzsch, Leipsic, 1869 - 95 (the text, though critical, does not concern itself with readings from the versions); the best ed. So far of the complete Hebrew text is C. D. Ginsburg's Hebrew Bible, 2 vols., London, 1894; the text alone was reprinted in 1906 (the Introduction to the Hebrew Bible by Ginsburg, London, 1897, is the one indis pensable handbook to the text); yet a very excellent Biblia H ebraica has been published by R. Kittel with the assistance of Professors G. Beer, F. Buhl, G. Dal man, S. R. Driver, M. Liihr, W. Nowack, J. W. Rothstein, and V. Ryssel, in 2 parts, Ieipsic, 1905 - O6, obtainable also in smaller sections. The new series entitled The Sacred Books of the Old Testament, ed. Paul Haupt, now in course of publication, Leipsic, London. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
