17 Ashkenazi, Baermann (Issacher Berman ben Naphtali, ha-Kohen); Einhorn, Zeeb Wolf Sefer Midrash rabah 'im kol ha-ma'alot ke-mevo'ar ba-sha'ar ha-sheni (2 volumes)
Bene Barak Mishor Reprint Hard Cover Very Good No Jacket 34 cm 
Text in Hebrew. Two volumes. Reprint of: Vilna: Ba-defus ve-hotsa'at ha-'almanah veha-'ahim Rom. Variant title: Midrash rabah 'al Hamishah humshe Torah ve-hamesh megilot. Tear at bottom of spine of volume 1. Previous owner's blind stamp on ffep. Text is clean, tight and unmarked by underlining or notations. Ashkenazi, Baermann was a Polish commentator on Bible and Midrash; lived in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Though the foremost of all Midrash commentators, the only fact known about him is that he lived in Szczebrzescin. Ashkenazi's great merit lies in the fact that he was the first and almost the sole commentator of the Midrash Rabbah (on the Pentateuch and the five Megillot) who combined extensive knowledge of the subject with sound critical judgment. He considered it of primary importance to render the Midrash text as correct as possible. The material upon which he applied his critical acumen consisted not alone of the texts that had been printed up to that time, but also of a number of manuscripts.[JewishEncyclopedia]
