Schoole der jooden, begrypende het geheele joodsche geloof, uit hun eige boeken en schriften, merendeels den christenen onbekend, grondig met aanwyzing van yder boek, plaats en blad, verklaard, Johannes Buxtorf. Rotterdam: Jan Daniel Beman, 1731. Essay on Judaism by Johannes Buxtorf, with four folded etching plates depicting Jewish customs (Simchat Torah, Passover Seder, Sukkot, Jewish wedding), and an additional etching (title page).
The Dutch edition of Buxtorf's work included four prints by Jan Luyken, who also illustrated Leone Modena's work.
Johann Buxtorf (1564-1629) was one of the most important Christian Hebraists of his day and was largely responsible for transforming Hebrew studies from an amateur hobby into an established academic discipline in the early seventeenth century. Buxtorf's work had far-reaching and long-lasting influence, appearing in a wide variety of editions and languages over the next century.
