Description

ISAIAH 65:13-66:24. “For lo, I will create new heavens and a new earth . . . so shall your seede and your name continue” (65:17; 66:22). Printed in London by Christopher Barker, 1576. First folio edition printed in England. Herbert 144b. SUPERIOR condition (see pics). Small folio, 10.25″ x 6.75″. Text continues the oracles of “Third Isaiah” (Ch 56-66) written after the Babylonian Exile, perhaps as late as c450, in the ongoing struggle to rebuild the Temple. The prophet reassures Israel (wherever they may be in the now emerging Diaspora) that Judea and Jerusalem will be the center of God’s refashioning the entire creation in fulfillment of God’s promise to Abraham in Genesis 12:3.
