One of the earliest English translations of the Babylonian Talmud, the first volumes of Michael L. Rodkinson's New Edition of the Babylonian Talmud began appearing in 1896. And in 1918, after many revisions and editing, The Talmud Society published the second editions of Rodkinson's monumental work in one complete collection. The Babylonian Talmud: Original Text, Edited, Corrected, Formulated and Translated into English contains all nineteen volumes that Rodkinson completed—almost the entire Babylonian Talmud (contains all of the tractates in the Order Mo'ed (Festivals) and Nezikin (Damages), plus some additional material related to these Orders).
Please note that all nineteen volumes in this collection will download as a single resource into your digital library. This resource includes the final 1918 revisions of the English translation and does not include the text from the original language source.

Michael Levi Rodkinson (1845–1904) was the first scholar to translate major portions of the Babylonian Talmud into English. Born in Israel, Rodkinson lived in Germany for a short period before moving permanently to New York City, where he worked as a publisher. His other works include The Pentateuch: Its Languages and Its Characters and The History of Amulets, Charms, and Talismans.
