1538 BOLOGNA FIRST EDITION HEBREWNEW HALF LEATHER BINDING, FINE COPY, LACKING TITLE
Yahya (Joseph ben David ibn) Perush Hamesh Megillot, first edition, lacking title This is the seventh of nine volumes published by the company of Jewish silk traders in Bologna. The author was from a Spanish/Portuguese family, forced to leave their country and seek reuge in Italy because of their refusal to convert to Christianity. Yahya's work was heavily subjected to censorship and his son Ghedalyah claimed that after his father's death all his unpublished manuscripts were burned.
ON PAGE 110 OF THE BOOK, THE AUTHOR MAKES A FASCINATING PROPHECY, SURPRISINGLY PROVEN CORRECT BY HISTORY:
in the line that starts with the word באופן
" באופן כי בסוף החמשת אלפים ושבע מאות שנה לבריאת העולם בקירוב אם מעט אחר כך יבוא קצנו בעזרת ה למען יוכלו לשבת בני ישראל בטח על אדמתם כשלש מאות שנה מהאלף הששי למען יתראה לעין כל היות האמת אתם....."
"In the end of five thousand and seven hundred years from creation (equivalent to the year 1940), or a bit before or a bit after will come the time with the help of god that the nation of Israel may settle securely on their land, for approximately 300 years of the sixth millennium ......."
Now that the author has proven himself with foretelling the future, the second part of his paragraph may not be as eagerly anticipated:
באלף השביעי יהפך העולם לתהו In the Year 6000 (2240 A.D.) the world will transform to emptiness.
