© Gross Family Collection, Photographer: Unknown,

This text was prepared by William Gross:

A collection of midrashim, mainly from kabbalistic books, written by Avraham Reuven HaCohen Sofer, a kabbalist of the Prague sages of the 17th C. The first part of the book is arranged alphabetically (Yalkut Reuveni HaKatan) and the second part is arranged according to the order of the Torah portions (Yalkut Reuveni HaGadol).
Seligman b. Hertz Reiss was a book dealer from a distinguished Frankfurt a.M. family. He learned the printing trade in Amsterdam and operated a Hebrew press in Homburg beginning in c.1714. He subsequently relocated to Offenbach, founding, together with his son Hertz, the first Hebrew press in that city.
