Abstract

Hebrew Sludies 35 (1994) available MSS as catalogued by the Institute of Microfilmed Hebrew Manuscripts of the Jewish National and University Library in Jerusalem .... Finally all known published editions of BMM have been consulted" (p. 95). There follows an exhaustive description and evaluation of both manuscripts and printed editions-as well as manuscripts excluded from the critical apparatus-that should be the envy of scholars desirous of editing rabbinic texts in the future. The very important chap. 6 is a veritable textbook in the important areas of "Text Criticism and Stemmatic Analysis." However, to appreciate this chapter's numerous insights fully, one has to study it in its entirety. The critical edition of BMM is provided with a rather comprehensive apparatus, which would be quite bewildering had not the editor provided us with both "Explanation of Transcription and Apparatus" and "Critical Symbols and Sigla." The translation is remarkable in its precision and clarity, and often serves as a commentary to the text. The "Note on Translation and Transliteration" is very helpful. The volume concludes with three valuable Appendices-a) Genizah Transcriptions and Plates thereto, b) MS Paris Addenda, c) Biblical Citations in BMM-and, last but not least, an extensive Bibliography.
