   First (only) edition of these novellae on tractates Eruvin, Bezah, and Sukkah in both the Babyloniqan and Jerusalem Talmuds by R. Joseph Zevi Hirsch Duenner of Amsterdam. This volume is one of several printed over a period of several years on various tractates by R. Dinner. The text is set in square letters in two columns.

R. Joseph Zevi Hirsch Duenner (1833–1911) was a rabbi and talmudist. R. Duenner was born in Cracow. He studied in the yeshivah there and subsequently at the University of Bonn. In 1862 R. Duenner was appointed director of the rabbinical seminary in Amsterdam and in 1874 chief rabbi of the Ashkenazi community there. Regarded as the spiritual leader of Orthodox Jewry in Holland, R. Duenner nevertheless combined traditional learning with a critico-historical approach. The results of his researches and his new interpretations were published as glosses to 19 tractates of the Talmud (1896–1929). His main work is Die Theorien ueber Wesen und Ursprung der Tosephta (1874). R. Duenner became a supporter of the early movement for settlement in Erez Israel in consequence of his contacts with Moses Hess while studying in Bonn. He later became a leader of the Mizrachi party.
