Description: Lugdun: Seb. Gryphius, excud., 1534. Small 8vo, 106 x 73 mms., unpaginated, collating a - z8 A - R8, later calf, probably 18th century, with gilt bordes on covers with a fleur-de-lys ornament in the centre of the inner gilt rectangle, a gilt Tudor emblem in the centre of the inner rectangle, gilt spine, black leather label, with early past-down end-papers from a New Testament text; title-page soiled, with name at top margin inked out and "Ja[mes] Robesone" in an early hand on the title-page and some early ms. annotations probably in the same hand in the margins of a few leaves at the beginning of the text. The holograph name on the title-page could be that of the Glasgow-born James (Jacob) Jacobsson Rosaham Robeson (1546 - 1614), the son of William Robeson and husband of Joan Robeson. [https://www.geni.com/people/James-Robeson/6000000003036785515]. The Hebraist and scholar Johannes van Campen (1490 - 1538) "was a student of J. Reuchlin and studied also at the new Trilingual College of the University of Louvain, which had been established at Erasmus' initiative. There he became professor of Hebrew, but later he traveled i+n Germany, Poland, Italy, and Switzerland where he taught Hebrew. In 1528, while still in Louvain, he published his Hebrew grammar, and in the same year in Leyden, a treatise on masoretic Hebrew, based upon the work of Elijah *Levita. His Latin paraphrase of the Hebrew text of Psalms (Nuremberg, 1532) attracted considerable attention and was translated into several languages, including English (1539)" (Encyclopedia.com). The present work was first published in 1532 and translated into English in 1534. Andrew Pettegree and?
