The Book of Psalms

London: Hutchinson & Co., c.1912. Edition: First edition, Binding: contemporary full cloth boards, title in gilt on upper board and spine, spine and upper board with decorative gilt motifs, upper board decorated with gilt ruling.

, Notes: The Book of Psalms (/sɑːmz/ or /sɔː(l)mz/ SAW(L)MZ; Hebrew: תְּהִלִּים, Tehillim, "praises"), commonly referred to simply as Psalms or "the Psalms", is the first book of the Ketuvim ("Writings"), the third section of the Hebrew Bible, and thus a book of the Old Testament. The title is derived from the Greek translation, ψαλμοί, psalmoi, meaning "instrumental music" and, by extension, "the words accompanying the music". The book is an anthology of individual psalms, with 150 in the Jewish and Western Christian tradition and more in the Eastern Christian churches. Many are linked to the name of David, but his authorship is not accepted by modern scholars.

, Size: Quarto (4to.), , Illustration: Illustrated with 24 coloured plates by Frank C. Pape., Category: Book Religious Judaism;. A very good example with decorative publishers’ gilt cloth.
