ISAIAH 62:5-65:12. “Since the beginning of the worlde . . . we are the clay, thou art our potter” (64:4, 8). Printed in London by Christopher Barker, 1576. First folio edition printed in England. Herbert 144b. FINE+ condition, light browning to top edge, older repair to bottom margin (see pics). Small folio, 10.25″ x 6.75″. Text continues the oracles of “Third Isaiah” (Ch 56-66) written in part after the Babylonian Exile c.530 BCE in the ongoing struggle to rebuild the Temple, and continuing perhaps c.450. The prophet reaffirms the preaching of Second Isaiah and reassures the remaining exiles as well as those already having returned that Jerusalem will be the center of God’s intention to refashion the entire creation.
