Rabbi Yitzchak Issac HaLevi wrote a 6 volume set of books entitled Doros Rishonim. The only version I found is on Hebrewbooks.org from the 60's. Is there a more recent printing of these books (printed by a publisher) or a new edition?

  • Could you clarify, whether you simply needed a new print-out of the old book from HB.org (in this case accept the answer below), or you were looking for a new edition of the book? May 21, 2019 at 7:50

    I'm asking about a new edition.

The correct title is "Doros HaRishonim".

As far as I know, it was NEVER reset in new type.

The edition from the 60's, was a photo offset reprint.

It can be reprinted by special order, for a reasonable price.

Just follow the links on the bottom of the HebrewBooks page: "Order Print Version (External site)".


Or on Amazon:

    I answered both about a new edition, and about a reprint more recent than the 1960's. May 19, 2019 at 19:42

    @Kazibácsi It seems to me that this post is a valuable response to the question. The first line assists in finding more information. The second line answers the question directly: "AFAIK no." The rest of it attempts to provide a next-best solution.

  • @Isaac As there's a misleading word (printing) in the question, it's hard to say what the OP was looking for. May 20, 2019 at 18:45
