Detail Description

A volume of the Amsterdam 1752-65 edition. An attractive, perhaps the most attractive, Talmud was printed in the eighteenth century and published by Joseph and Jacob Proops. The Proops family possesses among the most prominent names in the history of Hebrew printing. Their press was founded in 1704 by Solomon ben Joseph Proops who had been, as noted earlier, a bookdealer. He financed a number of works published at other presses. His was the longest lasting and most productive of the Hebrew printing-houses in Europe in the eighteenth century; it would continue to print Hebrew books until the mid-nineteenth century when, in 1869, the widow of David Proops sold the press to the Levissons, who printed until 1917.
