Paragraph 1    First book published by R. Wolf Heidenheim (Benjamin Ze'ev; 1757–1832), Hebrew grammarian, masoretic scholar, exegete, and commentator on the liturgy. Born in Heidenheim, Germany, he studied with Rabbi Nathan Adler in Frankfort. In 1788 he established himself in Offenbach, where he subsequently published R. Abraham ibn Ezra's grammatical work Moznayim (1791), with commentary and notes and part of an edition of the Pentateuch (up to Gen. 43:16) with a carefully corrected text of the Targum and several commentaries, together with explanations and a detailed commentary on Rashi by Heidenheim (Torat Elokim Meforash). He was obliged to abandon the project for financial reasons.

Paragraph 2    ... כבר נדפס זה פעמים ושלש באויגשבורג שנת רפ"א, בוויניציא ... ובאלטונא ... ואנכי וואלף בן שמשון היידנהיים בראותי כי בדקדוק לשון עברי אין טוב מזה הספר ... עברתי על פני כולו. וירדתי אל תוכו לנקותו לבררו ולקבעו בדפוס ... ובאר כל סתום ... כל חסר השלמתי ואת היתר החרמתי ...

דפוס אויגשבורג שנזכר בשער אינו ידוע לנו. בראשי העמודים: מאזנים.
