This first German translation of Pirke de-Rabbi Elieser (approx. 9th cent.) is based on the Venice printed edition of 1544, which is the textual basis for the textus receptus (Warsaw 1852) with the commentary by David Luria (1798-1855). The deletions made for the 1852 Warsaw edition are marked in the Hebrew text which is included with the translation. These marked passages make it clear that the deletions in the 1852 Warsaw edition related particularly to comments which could have been seen as polemical by non-Jews.
