Two scarce works on Latin and Hebrew language by English theologian Gregory Sharpe (1713-1771) bound in one volume, being: A Dissertation Upon the Origin and Structure of the Latin Tongue: Containing a Rational and Compendious Method of learning Latin: Taken from The Powers of the Servile Letters, The Uses of the Greek Digamma, and The Cuases of the Latin Tongue TOGETHER WITH Two Dissertations: I. Upon the Origin, Construction, Division, and Relation of Languages. II. Upon the Original Powers of Letters; wherein is proved from the Analogy of Alphabets, and the Proportion of Letters, that the Hebrew ought to be read without Points. To which is added, The Second Edition, enlarged, of a Hebrew Grammar and Lexicon, Without Points BEING Seven Letters Containing a New and Easy Method of Learning the Hebrew Language: The Second Edition Enlarged AND An Hebrew Lexicon, Containing all the Primitive Words in Hebrew, and Many Deriv’d Words in that and other Languages: with their Various Significations in Hebrew and English. Free from the Masoretic Points. To which is added An Alphabetical Table or Index of all the English and other Words in the Lexicon; with a Reference by Figures to the original Hebrew, The Second Edition, Enlarged, Answering to, or Derived from the Hebrew: in which The Hebrew Letter is the First Radical, and the numerical Figure refers to the Third Radical. The Greek, and all Words in Italic Character, are Derivatives.
