For the first time, this edition permits an overview of the complete direct handwritten evidence and makes it possible to recognize the lack of uniformity in the tradition. Avot de-Rabbi Natan A is presented in a large, double-paged synopsis with two appendices, the Avot de-Rabbi Natan B synopsis is shorter due to the fact that there are less manuscripts. Lists of parallels and a user-friendly reference system enable problem-free comparisons.
