Buxtorf, Johann Jakob
Buxtorf, Johann Jakob son of the last, was born Sept. 4,1645. He made rapid progress in his studies under Hoffman and Wetstein, and learned Hebrew under his father, whom he succeeded in the professor's chair at Basle. In 1664 he was appointed adjunct to his father, and afterward Hebrew professor. Travelling through Holland and England, he was everywhere received with distinction. He published nothing of his own, but he edited the Tiberias and Synagoga of his grandfather, and died in 1704. — Landon, s.v.
