The First Bible
The author demonstrates that the "first records of the Hebrews were written on tablets, and in the cuneiform script. This view may be supported by consideration of the variations in personal and geographical names that occur in parallel passages, in cases where they are so entirely unlike that no mistake between alphabetic letters, even in the later indistinct script whence square Hebrew originated, could account for the differences" (from Preface).
