Condition Report

Rare edition of Amsterdam. Hilpert's work is a disquisition that attacks Isaac La Peyrère's opera "The Praedamites", which supported preadamism. It is an early theory of the polygeneism that he supported, as by the Bible's analysis, can be inferred even before let us have many human pairs simultaneously. Hilpert, a native of Coburg, was a Lutheran, Hebrew and theology professor at Helmstadt.
