1 MARC-ANTOINE HEBRART 1555 - 1597 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT JOURNAL, LEDGER AND DIARY OF A JEWISH MERCHANT AND LAND BARON IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE
Dégagnac France [Lot] 1555 Very Good+ French 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall 
On offer is a fascinating handwritten medieval French manuscript book, earliest date 1555 with entries through 1597, in original blindstamped calf with small Fleur-de-lis. This stunning book has approximately 300 pages of handwritten entries being a register of acts, properties, transactions, loans, personal notes and journal entries the majority concerning Marc-Antoine Hébrart, a noted merchant in the village of Dégagnac in Lot in south-western France. Most certainly Jewish, it is evident that the Hebrart family was one of the largest land-holding families in the area. "In 1504 and 1505 the two "headmen" of the village, Antoine Hebrart and Pierre Peysson, together accounted for 15 percent of the land of the village" [Ref: By Le Roy, Emmanuel and Ladurie, John Day, The Peasants of Languedoc ] . A pencil annotation indicates that Marc Hébrard was of Jewish origin. A fairly cursory examination of the manuscript lends no additional support to this assertion, but it is possible given the history of the Jews of neighboring Languedoc, and the fact that some Jews remained in France under Christian-like assumed names after their expulsion in 1306. The generic 'Marc-Antoine' is cited as a Jewish name in Sara Uckelman's "Jewish Given Names Found in "Les Noms Des Israélites en France." Handsome blindstamped 16th century calf, legible bâtarde script, some old and minor restoration, but otherwise VG.

2 Pagninus SIR THOMAS PECKITT'S PERSONAL COPY: HEBREW GRAMMAR: Thesaurus Linguæ Sanctæ
LUGDUNI 1575 Half-Leather Very Good+ None Latin, Hebrew Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall 
ROYAL FOLIO. PRINTED 1575. ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT HEBREW GRAMMARS EVER COMPILED AND AT THE DISPOSAL OF THE TRANSLATORS OF THE KING JAMES BIBLE From the esteemed 18th century library of Thomas Peckitt, himself the author of Hebrew Grammar and other theological works, with his fine bookplate and signature. It should be noted that this is a very important volume in the Biblical Studies; The Trinitarian Bible Society in their April - June 1979 Quarterly Record cites this volume as being at the disposal of the translators for the KING JAMES BIBLE. The Book: Pagninus, "Thesaurus Linguæ Sanctæ", Lugduni, 1575. Large Folio Orginal soft calf with blindstamping, sympathetically rebacked, internally clean. From the famed library of Henry Peckitt, well known 18th century scriptural scholar with his siganture and handsome bookplate. Pagninus was perhaps the greatest of Christian Lexicographers and whose work was fundamental as an aid to 16th-century scriptural translators. A highly important work, only one copy of this 1575 edition in 30 years of auction records and that copy was a very poor one lacking a leaf. (A Finer 1548 Edition of this work Christies June 26, 1996, lot 113 $9240.00) As a measure if Pagninus' importance, it should be noted that that the first printed Bible divided into verses was an Old Testament Latin edition by Pagninus.
