Old Testament Translation
|Product Description: |
Helen Spurrell (1819-1891) decided to learn Hebrew at the age of 50, with a view to translating the Old Testament scriptures. A graduate of Oxford, she translated the Old Testament from the unpointed Hebrew text resulting in this delightful work. Due to a warehouse fire only a few copies of the 1st edition (1885) remain. A limited number of copies were printed in 1985 at the time of the translation's centenary.
