Description

This edition of Volney's work is extremely rare as an October 23, 2012 WorldCat search revealed that there are only 18 libraries in the world that have a copy of the first edition of this work.

The full title of this work is "New Researches on Ancient History: Embracing an Examination of the History of the Jews Until the Captivity of Babylon: and Showing the Origin of the Mosaic Legends Concerning the Creation, the Fall of Man, Flood, and  Confusions of Languages."

This is a comprehensive and critical account of the history of the so-called Jewish texts. The conclusion drawn by the author is a sweeping  and destructive of all that is thought to be christianity. While the conclusion is certainly accepted today, it was a profound attack on the veracity of the Jewish texts.

The author's conclusion is as follows:

"From all these propositions, it follows evidently that the books of the Jewish people have no right to regulate the annals of other nations, or to be our sole guides in remote antiquity; that their only merit is to furnish means of information , subject to the same inconveniences, liable to the same rules of criticism as those of other nations; that their system has been hitherto wrongfully made the regulator of all others; and that it is in consequence of this erroneous principle that writers have fallen into inextricable difficulties, by striving at one time to make events descend to later dates, at other times by lengthening out more recent events to remoter periods."
