Yet at his first step Monsieur Sariette stopped useless, stupefied, powerless alike to doubt or to credits what his eyes beheld. at the blue fabric hide of the writing-table books lay scattered approximately pell-mell, a few mendacity flat, a few status upright. a few quartos have been heaped up in a tottering pile. Greek lexicons, one contained in the different, shaped a unmarried being extra substantial match than the human of the divine Plato. A gilt-edged folio was once all a-gape, exhibiting 3 of its leaves disgracefully dog’s-eared. Having, after an period of a few moments, recovered from his profound amazement, the librarian went as much as the desk and acknowledged within the stressed mass his most beneficial Hebrew, French, and Latin Bibles, a special Talmud, Rabbinical treatises published and in manuscript, Aramaic and Samaritan texts and scrolls from the synagogues—in advantageous, the main helpful relics of Israel all mendacity in a disordered heap, gaping and crumpled. Monsieur Sariette discovered himself faced with an inexplicable phenomenon; however he sought to account for it. How eagerly he may have welcomed the concept Monsieur Gaétan, who, being a completely unprincipled guy, presumed at the correct won him by means of his deadly liberality in the direction of the library to rummage there unhindered in the course of his sojourns in Paris, have been the writer of this negative affliction. yet Monsieur Gaétan was once away traveling in Italy.

Monsieur René d’Esparvieu, in spite of the fact that, by no means labored at evening, and didn't learn Hebrew. possibly, proposal Monsieur Sariette, possibly he had introduced or allowed to be delivered to this room a few priest, or Jerusalem monk, on his approach via Paris; a few Oriental savant given to scriptural exegesis. Monsieur Sariette subsequent puzzled no matter if the Abbé Patouille, who had an enquiring brain, and in addition a behavior of dog’s-earing his books, had, peradventure, flung himself on those talmudic and biblical texts, fired with unexpected zeal to put naked the soul of Shem. He even requested himself for a second even if Hippolyte, the previous manservant, who had swept and dusted the library for 1 / 4 of a century, and were slowly poisoned by means of the airborne dirt and dust of amassed wisdom, had allowed his interest to get the higher of him, and have been there through the evening, ruining his eyesight and his cause, and wasting his soul poring by way of moonlight over those undecipherable symbols. Monsieur Sariette even went as far as to visualize that younger Maurice, on leaving his membership or a few nationalist assembly, may have torn those Jewish volumes from their cabinets, out of hatred for outdated Jacob and his glossy posterity; for this younger guy of kinfolk was once a declared anti-semite, and purely consorted with these Jews who have been as anti-semitic as himself. It used to be giving a truly loose rein to his mind's eye, yet Monsieur Sariette’s mind couldn't leisure, and went wandering approximately between speculations of the wildest extravagance.
