An uncommonly large paper copy with extended margins, this scholarly edition was prepared by the antiquarian Issac Metz, the cataloguer of Kohelet David (1826), the famed Oppenheim Collection). See A. Shear, The Kuzari and the Shaping of Jewish Identity (2008), pages 250-251. This classic work of medieval Jewish apologetics is a dialogue between the Khazar king and a Jewish sage, who convinces the king of the truth of Judaism, which, unlike the claims of philosophy, Christianity and Islam, is based on a national revelation. This results in the conversion of all Khazars to the Jewish faith. Pages: 3, 8, 127, 8. Few stains. Original printed wrappers bound into contemporary boards. Square 8vo. Vinograd, Hannover 46.
