Jesus: A New Biography

University of Chicago, 1928. Hardcover. This is an early reprint of Case's influential book about the historical Jesus, signed by Case. At the time of listing, we were able to find no other instances of Case's signature for sale online, so this book is an incredible rarity for collectors of Biblical scholarship. Case was a Canadian mathemetician and liberal theologian at the University of Chicago who rose to fame as a critic of the "Christ myth," as opposed to the historical human Jesus, the narrative for which Case advocated. This copy is missing its dust jacket except for the front flap, which is tucked inside as a bookmark. The front hinge is cracked and there is sticker residue on the spine. A contemporary newpaper clipping about this book is also laid inside. Very good. Item #540
