. ix + 990 pages, spine area mended with adhesive vinyl, boards a bit dampstained. Clearly printed and pointed Hebrew text in parallel column with Jewish Publication Society of America English translation, with brief commentary notes. A Haftorah is a short reading from the the Prophets which follows the reading from the Law in a Jewish synagogue. These cover about 30 pages near the end of the volume. This appears to be along the same lines as the "Soncino Books of the Bible" series but is in a slightly larger format and does not mention the series, perhaps because it is designed to be used in connection with worship. It was previously published in several volumes as early as the 1930s, thus predating the "Books of the Bible" series. The commentaries include contributions by J Abelson, A Cohen, G Friedlander and S Frampton.
