"First published in 1836, Prolegomeni ad una grammatica ragionata della lingua ebraica, is perhaps the most important grammatical work of the influential Italian scholar Samuel David Luzzatto (1800-1865). Never reprinted, and never before fully translated, this long inaccessible work has become almost unknown. Intended to serve as an introduction to a comprehensive Hebrew grammar, the book is replete with information and innovative insights that are still valuable to contemporary scholars. Moreover, in addition a complete translation with copious annotations, Aaron Rubin's edition of Luzzatto's Prolegomeni contains an appendix consisting of biographical sketches of the roughly 275 Hebrew scholars mentioned by Luzzatto. This book will be of great value to anyone interested in the Hebrew language and its fascinating history."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Sand and Pebbles presents the first complete English rendering of Shasekishu--the classic, popular Buddhist "Tale Literature" (setsuwa). This collection of instructive, yet often humorous, anecdotes appeared in the late thirteenth century, within decades of the first stirrings of the revolutionary movements of Kamakura Buddhism. Shasekishu's author, Muju Ichien (1226-1312), lived in a rural temple apart from the centers of political and literary activity, and his stories reflect the customs, attitudes and lifestyles of the commoners. In Sand and Pebbles, complete translations of Book One and other significant narrative parts are supplemented by summaries of the remaining (especially didactic) material and by excerpts from Muju's later work. Introduced by a historical sketch of the period, this work also contains a biography of Muju. Illustrations, charts, a chronology, glossary of terms, notes, an extensive bibliography and an index guide the reader into a seldom seen corner of old Japan. Muju and his writings will interest students of literature as well as scholars of Japanese religion, especially Buddhism. Anthropologists and sociologists will discover details of Kamakura life and thought unrecorded in the official chronicles of the age.

Lackbrain, oysterwench, wantwit, clotpoll...Samuel Johnson's famous dictionary of 1755 contained some of the ripest insults in the English language and, in this book, Jack Lynch has compiled more than 300 of the curmudgeonly lexicographer's mightiest barbs, along with the definitions that only the master himself could elucidate. Many of these expostulations have long lain dormant. Some have even become close to extinction. Now they are back in all their discomfiting glory, ready to be relished once more.

San Francisco Relocated

San Francisco’s colorful history has been explored so extensively that it is surprising to note that its moved buildings remain one of the city’s best-kept secrets. Reports are widely scattered in newspapers and architectural references; yet, despite the fact that the city’s relocations are second only to Chicago’s, there are no books in print concerning this curious history—until now. And it is a long, lively tale indeed. Beginning in 1850 and continuing today, it involves hundreds of moved structures, from houses and apartment buildings to churches and schools. Buildings were relocated for many reasons, from street modifications in the early 1900s to the advent of freeways and Bay Area Rapid Transit (BART) in the 1950s and 1960s. Buildings were cut in half and moved in pieces, disassembled and moved brick by brick, or (more commonly) moved intact—some as heavy as 9,000 tons or as long as 110 feet. Buildings moved to San Francisco via ship around Cape Horn, traveled across town using horses and wagons or (later) trucks, and were barged over the Bay.
