Aside from its language, the Bomberg edition of Nedarim is also anomalous in at least three other ways. First, the Talmudic text is surrounded by the commentaries of Rabbi Nissim ben Reuben of Girona (ca. 1310-ca. 1375), and Rabbi Asher ben Jehiel (ca. 1250-1327), and one attributed to Rashi; the comments of Tosafot are relegated to the end of the volume. Second, the “Rashi” commentary ends abruptly on f. 22b, where it is replaced by that of Rabbi Gershom ben Judah of Mainz (ca. 960-1029). Finally, some copies of the first edition of Nedarim have title pages dated June-July 1522. According to Raphael Nathan Note Rabbinovicz, this original title page was later replaced by the present one due to a self-deprecating phrase used on the former in regard to the “extremely corrupt” text of the Tosafot.
