This is the final 1731 work of Leclerc's commentaries on the Bible, that began in 1693 (with his Book of Genesis), being in particular the sections on Jacob, Psalms of David, Solomon, Proverbs, etc. "Founding principally on the position that more recent objects are referred to in the Canon than such as were known in the time of Ezra, Leclerc was of opinion that the collection of the Canon is due to the zealous endeavours of pious individuals who had preserved the separate parts of it until the reading of the Prophets along with the Law came into use in the age of the Maccabees, which rendered the collecting of the whole necessary" (Havernick, p. 33). Chetham's Library and the Cambridge copies both have 3 folding plates, but no evidence of plates (maps) in 15 other copies listed on Copac. No plates are in this copy.
