Jacob Judah Leon was a rabbi and Sephardic scholar in Middelburg in Zeeland and later in Amsterdam. He became famous for his model of the Temple (cata logue no. 57), but he also made a model of its tented precursor, the Tabernacle of Moses. The description was first published in Dutch in 1647; the volume here is a Spanish edition with fine illustrations. Leon deals with the design and construction of the Tabernacle and its priestly management, as well as the camp of the Israelites in their wandering journey led by Moses. The model of the Tabernacle was an added attraction in the successful commercial exhibition of Leon’s Temple.
