THE TWO CREATION STORIES IN GENESIS: A Study of their Symbolism. With Footnotes, Appendices and Index.
London: John M. Watkins, 1920. FIRST EDITION. Name on fly; some foxing in the margins; VERY GOOD+ copy in bright dust jacket. "Two distinct stories of creation are contained in the first three chapters of Genesis. They form the introduction to the Old Testament, and are occasionally referred to therein, but it cannot be said that any definite claim is made by the writers that these are documents which narrate actual history. Indeed, no historic validity appears to be ascribed to them in any of the sacred writings of the Hebrews." -- from the Preface. 292 pages. Tall 8vo. (Item ID: 10531)
