Note
  • The t.p. is dated M.DC.LVII, but an "X" has been added in ink to make it M.DC.LXVII; both the frontispiece and colophon are dated 1667
  • A manual for the instruction of deaf-mutes via Hebrew letter-forms. The author seeks to show that the Hebrew letters and vowel-points are exact pictorial representations of the positions assumed by the tongue in voicing the respective sounds; with this latter idea, he was trying to prove that Hebrew speech is a "holy language" because the characters of its alphabet are near-diagrams of the position of the tongue in making its sounds, which had its background in the first teachings of the Father of Light. Cf. G.B. Sherrer's "Francis Mercury Van Halmont: a neglected seventeenth-century contribution to the science of language" in The review of English studies, v.14, no. 56 (Oct. 1938): p. 420-427
  • Added engraved illustrated t.p. signed: "I. Frank sc.", dated 1667
  • Headpieces; initials
  • With printed shoulder notes
  • Signatures: ):(12 2):(6 A-D12 E6
Dimensions

Spec. Coll. copy: Brown calf, stamped in blind. The added t.p. has been added to this copy in facsimile on old paper. Ex libris bookplate of a Masonic lodge (founded in 1819) on pastedown: "Eigentum der Loge Carl zum aufgehenden Licht in Frankfurt am Main" and possibly, its stamp ("CZAS" in a circle) on the t.p. An older ex libris is found in ink on the t.p. verso: "Ex Collect. Lib. Georgii Ph. Helbergui, Heidelb. 1779". Purchase, Krown & Spellman, 2011.
