More About this Item


Description: Babylonian Talmud, Tractate Eruvin, "with Rashi and Tosfot commentaries and Piskei Tosfot and Perush HaMishnayot and Rabbeinu Asher". Venice, 1528. Second edition printed by Daniel Bomberg. This well-known edition became a common basis for all subsequent editions of the Talmud. It introduced the “tzurat hadaf” (the layout of the page), and the pagination still in use today. The first printing of this edition took place during 1520-1523, its editing based on extensive research of manuscripts. Afterward, due to great demand, Bomberg reprinted another edition in ca. 1528-1529. This edition contained variations according to the manuscripts or the editors' considerations. R. Refael Natan Neta Rabinowitz in his article on the printing of the Talmud (p. 46) especially notes Tractate Eruvin "which is very different from the version of 1521". He brings several examples of the variations and additions to the Talmud version and the division of the Rosh commentary to the passages and "many glosses of the Rosh which were not printed in the 1521 edition". Interestingly, part of the variations which Rabinowitz notes do indeed appear here and some of them [such as referrals to Tosfot inside the Talmud version by circular signs above the word] do not appear in this copy. Apparently, this is another variant of this printing. Inscriptions and signatures: "Shalom Lacham", "Yeshaya Sithon", "Avraham son of R. Ye'uda HaLevi", "Ezra Chaim [--] Douek HaCohen, and more. 131 leaves. 39 cm. Fair-good condition. Stains, worming, wear and tears to margins. Handsome new binding.
