A late 17th century translation of the Book of Ecclesiastes, being one of the 24 books of the Hebrew Bible, and being among the canonical works of wisdom literature of the Old Testament. While King Solomon has been credited as the author, this notion has been rejected in more recent history. The book is presented as the musings of a king of Jerusalem as he relates his experiences and draws lessons from them that are often self-critical.
One finely bound volume in 12mo, (12)+599+(25) pages
