The pages are very clear. Edward Pococke 1604-1691, was an English Orientalist and biblical scholar. He made himself master of Arabic, which he not only read but spoke fluently, studied Hebrew, Samaritan, Syriac, and Ethiopic, and associated of friendly terms with learned Muslims and Jews who helped him in collecting manuscripts. Pococke's observation of eastern manners and natural history served him in good stead as a commentator on the Old Testament (cf. his famous correction of 'wailing like the dragons' in Micah 1, into 'howling like the jackals') As a pastor he was devoted and indefatigable. The theological works of Pococke were collected in two volumes, and published in 1740 with a curious account of his life and writings by Leonard Twells.). N° de réf. du libraire 7659

Description de la librairie : Since 2004 we are established as Boekhandel en Antiquariaat De Roo in a number of shop-premises in Zwijndrecht, the Netherlands. Our offer is specialized in old and rare books from before 1800. Most of these books concern theology, church history and history but also related subjects like atlases and handcoloured works. Beside this we deal in new books and second-hand books concerning the same matters in our store and webshop. In 2010 we started to sell by auction on an annual base, about 500 lots covering the area of old and rare books from before 1800, most concerning theology, church history and related subjects. Quality and completeness are valued high. Each month De Roo publishes a list with the new arrivals and three times a year we publish a printed catalogue. A catalogue with exclusive items, one with items that are for sale and an auction catalogue. Both the list of the new arrivals and all catalogues can be found in our webshop, www.derooboeken.nl. De Roo features a unique competence in providing books in the Netherlands and abroad for especially collectors, investors, Christian readers and those with an interest in old and rare books. In this area we enjoy a well-accepted and trustworthy reputation. We are always interested in purchasing special books. Without any obligations you can contact us by e-mail or telephone to make an appointment. You are always welcome to visit us in our shop!
