Description Information
   [2], 67-88 ff., 284:186 mm., closely trimmed margins, light age staining. A good copy bound in modern full leather boards, tooled in blind.
   Avot with the commentaries of Rashi and the Rambam. Avot became a text for recital in the synagogue, it has been reproduced and reprinted more often than any other talmudic work. It is included in editions of the traditional prayer book. Since it furnishes teachings of what the Jewish sages considered fundamental aspects of life, and because these teachings were expressed in polished epigrams, Avot has been the best known talmudic treatise among non-Jews. It has been translated into Latin, English, French, German, Italian - probably into every language the prayer book has been translated into.
Paragraph 2    עם פירוש... רבינו משה בן הרב רבינו מיימון זצ"ל. עם הקדמת שמנה פרקיו. וגם פירו' ראש המפרשי' רבינו שלמה זצ"ל ... נדפס שנית... בשם הסופר כמ"ר מאיר יצ"ו בכמ"ר אפרים זצ"ל מפדובה ע"י יעקב בכמ"ר נפתלי הכהן ז"ל מגאזולו... בימי הפורים שנת ש"ך

הטכסט מנוקד. ראינו טופס על נייר כחול. הסדר מתוך מחזור... כמנהג ק"ק רומה, מנטובה שי"ז-ש"ך (ומכאן מספרי הדפים), בשינויים טיפוגראפיים קלים ובתוספת שער.
