    Commentary on the Psalms of David

    Parzabanutiwn hogenvag Saghmosatsn Davti Margarein (Illustration of the Melodious Psalms of Prophet David), Venice: Nahapet Gulnazar, 1687. This commentary on David's Psalms was translated from different sources by Hovhannes Holov and printed with the sponsorship of an Armenian merchant, Nahapet Gulnazar, in his own house. Interestingly, while the biblical texts are in Classical Armenian, the commentary was written in Early Modern Armenian; the book was intended for the merchant community. There is a picture of the sponsor, Nahapet Gulnazar, on the second page, with the following caption: "And I as a fruitful olive, I hoped for God's mercy in the house of God." Number 139 in the online Catalogue of Armenian Books. Very important. Large black leather cracked cover. Hand illustrated on margins. 840 pages. 9 x 7.25 inches. From the collection of a gentleman of New York.
