RARE edition of the first translation of Aggadat Bereshit, a homiletic Midrash on the Book of Genesis written in Hebrew, about the 10th century CE. This volume also presents some variants from manuscripts unknown by its last editor (S.Buber, Krakow 1903) and an extensive introduction which gives an up-to-date overview of the questions as to text, contents, structure, dating and provenance of this hitherto neglected Midrash. 245x160mm. XXXVI+306 pages. Hardcover with dust-jacket. Silver lettering on front cover and spine. Jacket edges/hinges slightly wrinkled. This extremely rare book, of immense interest to scholars of the Bible, Rabbinical Judaism and Christianity, as well as academics or lay-persons with lesser knowledge of rabbinic Hebrew, is in very good condition!
