Description


Excerpt from The Talmud: Selections From the Contents of That Ancient Book, Its Commentaries, Teachings, Poetry, and Legends; Also, Brief Sketches of the Men Who Made and Commented Upon It

The object of the following pages is to give to the student and general reader a fair idea of the contents of the Talmud.

Some time since the translator was asked how it was that no English translation of the Talmud was in existence, and being convinced that many would be interested in its contents, he re solved upon the book which he now presents to the public. It is merely a collection of specimens, and makes no pretensions to any more advanced standing. The only object has been to give in plain, easy language, a correct idea of the scope, and as gen eral an idea as possible of the varied sections of the ancient and wonderful work.
