Description
   Title: Edut be-Ya`akov: Ueber die Mysterien, welche enthalten sind in den zur Bezeichnung Gottes dienenden drei Vocalbuchstaben y. h. v.: ein Versuch aus den hebräischen Urkunden und späteren rabbinischen Schriften den Ursprung und wahren Begriff der Trinitäts-Idee nachzuweisen und zu entwickeln, als Beitrag zur Würdigung des Judenthumes und des rein bibilschen Christenthumes

A work on the Trinity and the significance of the number 3 by an anonymous author who refers to himself as a Jewish clergyman. It is an attempt to prove the origin of the trinity from Hebrew writings and rabbinical sources. The text is in German, with occasional words or phrases in Hebrew.

WorldCat lists six libraries worldwide ( two with the Hebrew title, and 4 with the title "Ueber die Mysterien"), and attributes authorship to Albert Cohen for the ones with the Hebrew title. No author is listed for the others.
