On title page: "Psalms: revised according to the Massorah and the early printed editions, with various readings &c. From mss. And the ancient versions by C. D. Ginsburg; being a reprint from the Massoretico-critical text by the same editor. " Interleaved 'massoretico-critical text' edition of the psalms, with copious notes by previous owner in pen in Hebrew and English on first few interleaves. Christian David Ginsburg (1831–1914) , was a "Bible scholar. Born in Warsaw, he converted to Christianity in 1846 and soon afterward moved to England. Ginsburg devoted himself to research on the masoretic text of the Bible; The Massorah (his magnum opus) , published between 1880–1905 in four volumes, is the fruit of his labor. In the first two volumes, the original text of the masorah (in Hebrew) is arranged alphabetically with many additional notes drawn from manuscripts. The third volume contains supplements, and some masoretic tractates; the fourth renders into English all Hebrew entries of the first volume up to the letter 'yod, ' with explanatory notes. In his work, Ginsburg amassed rich and rare material; some of it, however, is not accurate. He also published two standard editions of the Hebrew Bible (1894, 1911) based on the same research. In Introduction to the Massoretico-Critical Edition of the Hebrew Bible (1897, repr. 1966) and in A Series of 15 Facsimiles of MSS of the Hebrew Bible (1897; second edition: A Series of 18 Facsimiles , 1898) , he explains his system. In 1904, on the occasion of its centennial, the British Bible Society entrusted Ginsburg with the publication of a new critical Hebrew Bible text; it was completed only in 1926." - 2008 EJ.
