Paragraph 1    Signed by Ottensosser on title.
   With German (Hebrew letters) translation and commentary (Hebrew) of David Ottensosser (1784–1858), Hebrew scholar. Born in Germany, he was a teacher at Fuerth yeshivah. Ottensosser devoted himself mainly to the study of Maimonides, upon whose works he drew in his Bible commentaries. His editions of Maimonides' works are among the best of his volumes of ancient texts, and he published Maimonides' letters with a German translation (Iggerot ha-Moreh, 1846) and an anthology of his teachings (Imrei Da'at Rambam, 1848). His explication and translation into German of Isaiah (1807) was his first effort in this field. He published a corrected edition of Mendelssohn's Bible, in which he improved upon the Pentateuch translation. He also edited Abraham Bedersi's Olelot ha-Bohen, Jedaiah Bedersi's Behinot Olam, and the travelogue of Pethahiah of Regensburg, Sibbuv ha-Olam (with a German translation, 1854), as well as a German version (with Hebrew commentary) of the liturgy (1811).
Paragraph 2    כולל בקשת הממין ובקשת הלמדין, מהרב... ר' ידעיה הפניני בדרשי זצ"ל. עם תרגום אשכנזי ([באותיות עבריות] המתרגם... חיים הירש שוואבאכער) ובאור ([בעברית] המבאר... דוד אטטענזאסער)...

הטקסטים מנוקדים. "בקשת הלמדין" אינה לר' ידעיה אלא לאביו ר' אברהם בדרשי ונתפרסמה תחילה על שם ר' ידעיה בתוך ספרו בחינת עולם, מנטובה שט"ז.
