From the Introduction: "I do not pretend to have explored for this little work...the Midrash in the whole of its scope. I have not even as much as touched the Pesikta (the oldest of all Midrashim) Mechilta, Yalkut, Sifra or Sifré; but have restricted myself to about nine hundred quotations from the following Midrashim, viz. Rabba on the five books of Moses and the five Megilloth, Tanchuma on the Pentateuch, and the Midrash on Psalms, Proverbs and Samuel."
This book has 214 pages in the PDF version, and was originally published in 1907.
Production notes: This e-book of Tales and Maxims from the Midrash was published by Global Grey in 2018.
