   The third Sulzbach edition was inferior in quality to the competing Amsterdam edition and within financial reach of all. Book dealers referred to this edition as "The Black Sulzbach" versus the earlier second edition known as "The Sulzbach Red" for the red letters in the title page. The second edition was printed by their father, Meshullam Zalman b. Aaron in 1755–63. As with the earlier edition the Proophs objected to the Sulzbach printing and numerous decrees and counter decrees were issued by many rabbis before the issue was settled with an agreement to allow this edition to be printed - albeit in seven years or less and the "permission" is not transferable or saleable to others.

The Sulzbach press printed 702 works, which consisted mostly of siddurim, mahzorim, Bibles, three editions of the Talmud, and popular musar (ethical) literature in Judeo-German. From 1699 until 1851, the year the press shut down, it was held by the Frankel-Arnstein family.

Paragraph 2    עם פירוש רש"י ותוספות ופסקי תוספות... כפי אשר נדפס בבסיליא"ה ... בפרנקפורט דמיין ובפרנקפורט דאדר ובבערלין ... ובשיעור דף על דף ממש ועם כמה מעלות טובות...
