Jan Janson (Yohan Yanson, d. 1757) founded his press in 1752. His output seems to have been rather limited; the STCN records only eight editions printed by him. Although copies of this edition are recorded in several Dutch libraries, it isn't listed in the STCN.


Cf. Heller, Printing the Talmud (2019) p. 253.
