Bomberg, Daniel
(113 words)

[German Version]

(c. 1458, Antwerp – c. 1553, Antwerp) was the most important printer of Hebrew books in the 16th century. Bomberg ran a publishing house in Venice from 1516 to 1538/39 and, in conjunction with Jewish scholars, published the first (1517/18) and second (1524/25; the basis of all other editions) rabbinic Bibles as well as the first complete editions of both Talmuds (1520–1523). The pagination of Bomberg's editions of the Talmud was adopted by all later editions.
