* Tractate Avodah Zarah, 2-97 leaves, printed without title page due to censorship. 35 cm.
Early edition of the Talmud, printed according to Basel Press' well-known edition, 1578-1581. However, the Basel edition was printed without Tractate Avodah Zarah because of censorship, and here it was printed without a title page. The beginning of the volume, preceding the title-page, features copperplate illustrations with drawings of Moshe, Aharon, David and Shlomo. Refer to the description of the illustrated title page in: A. Yaari, Diglei HaMadpisim HaIvriim, Jerusalem, 1944, page 49, 152, number 78. Fine condition. Damaged antique leather binding.

Proofread by the Maharshal and Rabbi Yosef Shmuel of Frankfurt. 87 leaves, including title-page. For censorship reasons, the printers changed the tractate's name, Avodat Kochavim, at the top of the pages. The name of the tractate was not printed, in contrast with the other tractates. There are forms printed completely without a title page, but the form before us contains one.
