The book was printed in the late 1640s the publisher is Menadseh Ben Israel. This information came from a professor at Wake Forest University. My father spoke with the professor who thru a friend of my father's has a daughter who also works at WFU and took the book for the professor to look at. I will attach copies of written information received and of the book

There are three books total my sister has one, I have one, and then there is this book. My father recently turned 87 and gave this book to me to find out more information and to get it appraised. So this is where I went first. The last several pictures, I am sending are of the second book given to me by my father. All three books were purchased from an Indian Male in Brazil by my great great grandfather. It is believed he traded tobacco for the books but of course we have no way of knowing I'd this is true or not. The old Jacobs Tobacco Company was somehow owned or had something to do with our family so there is always that possibility.

I sent approximately 10 photos last night?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I sent several again, did they go thru? The green check mark appeared in front of each image and I hit the send button. Several times, so if you get numerous pics, sorry.

Hi, There are no images showing on my end here. There may be an +Add Files button or if there is a toolbar with a paperclip icon showing above the box where you type in responses, then follow the steps on this link for sharing photos: http://ww2.justanswer.com/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert ~Nora

I used the +Add files and after each picture a green ck mark appeared as the loaded and then I hit send. So sorry, where ever they are I have now sent them about 10 times lol. I am on my way to work now. So if I have a break I will send them if not I will try again tomorrow. I am a detective in law enforcement so I may or may not have a break but will try. Thank you and my apologies for no pictures
