Disraeli was a noted scholar, historian, philosopher and all around bibliophile of his time.
These volumes are a treat to read for the intellectual discoveries to be made.
You learn, for example, in the first volume that there is an edition of the Bible called the "Wicked Edition" of the Bible. The reason this edition of the Bible is called the "Wicked Edition" is that it failed to include the word "not" in the seventh commandment. Thus it reads "Thou shall commit adultery."
This reminds me of the so-called "Wicked Prayer Book" (1686 edition). It said those who commit "adultery, fornication, uncleanliness, idolatry" … "they who do these things shall inherit the kingdom of God."
You also learn about the "Vulgate Edition" of the Bible, and this is still only in the first volume, issued by Pope Sixtus V. Disraeli writes of this edition of the Bible "Of all literary blunders none equalled that of the edition of the Vulgate, by [Pope] Sixtus V. His Holiness carefully superintended every sheet as it passed through the press; and, to the amzement of the world, the work remained without rival -- it swarmed with errata!"
In addition, you will also learn in what season the world was created. If the world was created, it must have been created at some time. Since there are four seasons, it must have been created in one of them.
Disraeli quotes Chevreau, from his work entitled the "History of the World," as follows: "Several Learned men have examined in what season God created the world, though there could hardly be any season then, since there was no sun, no moon, no stars. But as the world must have been created in one of the four seasons, this question has excercised the talents of the most curious, and opinions are various."
Read this work to discover the answer to the above question, and, remember, this is only the first volume of this bibliophile repast.
