Detailed Description:   

Three tractates of the third Sulzbach edition, it was inferior in quality to the competing Amsterdam edition and within financial reach of all. Book dealers referred to this edition as "The Black Sulzbach" versus the earlier second edition known as "The Sulzbach Red" for the red letters in the title page. The second edition was printed by their father, Meshullam Zalman b. Aaron in 1755–63. As with the earlier edition the Proophs objected to the Sulzbach printing and numerous decrees and counter decrees were issued by many rabbis before the issue was settled with an agreement to allow this edition to be printed - albeit in seven years or less and the "permission" is not transferable or saleable to others.

The Sulzbach press printed 702 works, which consisted mostly of siddurim, mahzorim, Bibles, three editions of the Talmud, and popular musar (ethical) literature in Judeo-German. From 1699 until 1851, the year the press shut down, it was held by the Bloch-Frankel-Arnstein family. They dominated Sulzbach printing from the end of the seventeenth century to the middle of the nineteenth century. Beginning with Moses Bloch, his son-in-law Aaron Frankl, and Aaron's son Meshullam Zalman (active 1721-1764). The books produced by the press were of a low quality and intended to be affordable to all.
