Harris, Rev. William:

Printed for D.A. Borrenstein, at 94 William-Street, New York: 1823 23pp, disbound, lightly tanned. Very Good. Harris, professor of Hebrew at Hoxton Academy, demonstrates the differences between Chaldee and Hebrew for readers of the dialects. He states, "No such publication-- so far as the compiler's knowledge extends-- is extant in the English language." With a table of contents, and much of the text printed in Hebrew characters. The book first issued from London in 1822. This is an early imprint of David Aaron Borrenstein, an English Jew who had converted to Christianity. He learned printing under the auspices of the London Society for Promoting Christianity Amongst the Jews. Rosenbach 239.
