Second edition, revised. The second edition of the first Hebrew grammar published in the United Sates, preceded by the 1829 edition which was also published in Andover by Flagg and Gould. A graduate of Yale University, Moses Stuart (1780-1852), clergyman and Biblical scholar, was called to the professorship of sacred literature at Andover Theological Seminary, Andover, Massachusetts, where he was inaugurated 28 February 1810. "At that time there was probably no native-born American who knew enough Hebrew to teach it properly. He began at once to study Hebrew seriously and wrote a short Hebrew grammar which he circulated among his students in manuscript. In 1821 he imported a font of Hebrew type and printed a larger Hebrew grammar, the first to appear in America. Since no compositor was able to handle it, he had to set most of the type himself." - DAB. Binding extremities worn, printed label chipped, some foxing and staining to text block, a good copy overall. (#111447). N° de réf. du libraire 111447
