IN HEBREW. PART ONE ONLY OF TWO. ERSTES HEFT of the critical edition of `Midrash Ha-Gadol` on the book of Exodus - a collection of midrashim and exegesis compiled in medieval Yemen, regarded by many as a masterpiece of Jewish Yemenite literature. The editor - David Zvi Hoffmann (1843-1921) was an eminent Orthodox Rabbi and Torah Scholar whose rabbinical training was at the hands of Moshe Schick and Azriel Hildesheimer. Shortly after obtaining his degree, he became employed as a teacher in Samson Raphael Hirsch`s Realschule school in Frankfurt am Main, and in 1873 moved to Berlin to join the faculty of the Rabbinical Seminary of Berlin where he eventually became rector in 1899 after the death of Azriel Hildesheimer. This edition was proofed and edited by the Mekitze Nirdamim society. 240x160mm. 80 pages. Softcover. Cover yellowing/age-stained and wrinkled. Cover corners and edges worn and tattered. Front cover detached; edges partly chipped. Rear cover almost detached. Spine worn and partly missing. Rear cover and few pages upper corner water-stained - NO damage to text. Page edges/corners slightly bumped/worn. Pages bottom part wrinkled. Pages yellowing and uncut. [SUMMARY]: Despite the aforementioned mostly external damage, this rare Midrash is in good reading condition.
