Die Abfassungszeit der Baraita der 32 Normen für die Auslegung der heiligen Schrift

Berlin: M. Poppelauer, 1913. First edition. Softcover. Royal octavo. Vi, 107, [3]pp. Original printed wraps with printer's device on front cover and title-page. Scarce and fascinating work on the Baraita on the Thirty-two Rules (or Baraita of R. Eliezer ben Jose ha-Gelili). It is a baraita giving 32 hermeneutic rules for interpreting the Bible. It no longer exist, except in references by later authorities. Abul-Walid ibn Janah is the oldest authority who drew upon this Baraita, but he did not mention it by name. Rashi makes frequent use of it in his commentaries on the Bible and the Talmud. He either briefly calls it the thirty-two rules (Hor. 3a) or designates it as the "Baraita of R. Eliezer b. Jose ha-Gelili" (Gen. ii. 8; Ex. xiv. 24). Also the Karaite Judah Hadassi, who incorporated it in his Eshkol ha-Kofer, recognized in it the work of this R. Eliezer. Some age wear on wraps with spine and edges of covers age-toned and lower part of front cover chipped. Tiny chipping on upper and lower edge of back cover. Text in German with some Hebrew. Wraps in overall fair to good-, interior in very good condition. g. Item #26664
