Description Information
   Only edition. 47 pp., 208:135 mm., wide margins, light age staining. A very good copy not bound.
   Pirke Avot with the commentary of R. Benjamin b. Joseph Feilbogen. 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.
