Description:
This ASU-owned book contains a poem at the back that appears to be a revised or edited version of “David’s Lamentation over Saul and Jonathan” titled by the writer “David’s Funeral Elegy over Saul and Jonathan.” Also, the page where the actual lamentation occurs in the text includes a reader’s note which says “How are the mighty fallen, and the weapons of war famished!” These might be the work of a student who was using the book.
