Ben Israel, a Portuguese-Jewish rabbi, scholar, diplomat and printer, founded the first Hebrew printing press in Amsterdam in 1626, at age 22. The date on the Latin title-page is 1635; the dates on the three Hebrew title-pages for the parts within have been altered in ink from 1631 to 1636. Verse numbers have been supplied later, probably 20th century.
