A VOLUME OF 

THE BOOK OF PRECEPTS 

By HEFES B. YASLIAH 

EDITED FROM AN ARABIC MS. IN THE LIBRARY OF THE 

DROPSIE COLLEGE, TRANSLATED INTO HEBREW 

AND PROVIDED WITH CRITICAL NOTES 

AND AN INTRODUCTION 

By B. HALPER, M.A., Ph.D. 
278 pages. Cloth bound. Price $2.00 post paid. 

This volume represents the first codification of talmudic laws in Arabic. 
It is a store-house of Halakah philology and philosophy as it was under- 
stood at the beginning of the period of Jewish-Arabic literary activity. 

Dr. Hartwig Hirschfeld, of Jews' College, London, and of the University 
of London, in reviewing the book in the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society, 
says : ' Dr. Halper's introduction is thorough and instructive, his notes are 
ample and clear up most of the difficulties in a satisfactory manner. . . . The 
work is an eloquent testimony to his erudition both in Arabic and Rabbinics, 
and its elegant get-up does great credit to the author as well as to the 
institution under whose auspices it was published.' 



PROLEGOMENA TO A GREEK-HEBREW 

AND HEBREW-GREEK INDEX 

TO AQUILA 

By JOSEPH REIDER, Ph.D. 

160 pages. Cloth bound. Price $1.50 post paid. 

This is the first thorough treatment of Aquila's Greek translation of the 
Bible, so indispensable to biblical exegesis. Next to the Septuagint the 
Aquila version is the most important witness of the original text of the Bible 
as it existed during the early part of the second century. While articles and 
notes had been written heretofore dealing with some special phases of this 
interesting version, this is the first attempt to deal comprehensively and 
exhaustively with every phase of it — grammatical and lexical, textual and 
exegetical. Moreover, in compiling this material, not only the old but also 
all the new fragments of the latest Genizah finds have been consulted.

A History of 
Mediaeval Jewish Philosophy 

By ISAAC HUSIK, Ph.D. 

L + 452 pages. Cloth bound. Price $3.00 



The first complete history of mediaeval Jewish rationalistic 
philosophy for both the student and the general reader which 
has as yet been written in English. 

In the words of an eminent reviewer, 'To have compressed 
a comprehensive discussion of five centuries of earnest and pro- 
ductive thought upon the greatest of themes into a book of 
less than four hundred and fifty pages is an achievement upon 
which any author may be congratulated. To have done the work 
so well and in particular to have expressed profound reflections 
upon abstruse problems in a style so limpid, so fluent, so readily 
understood, is to have placed all who are interested in thought 
and thinkers under great obligation.'
