Description Information
   First edition. [3], 28 ff., 155:90 mm., usual light age staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary boards.
   Selections to be learned on Rosh Hodesh Av in honor of Aaron, Kohen Gadol. The title page informs that it is comprised of readings from the Bible, Mishnah, Talmud, Midrashim, and Zohar. Jews should assemble one day in the year, “the holes of the rocks” (Isaiah 2:19), Rosh Hodesh Av, which comes out, “in the midst of her distress” (Lamentations 1:3), that is, bein ha-mezarim, the period between 17 Tamuz and 9 Av (Tishah be-Av). Its merit should be a shield for us, a light in the darkness and shine brightly.It is dated, “And I will bless her וברכתי (638 = 1878)” (Genesis 17:16). There is an approbation from R. Abraham Palache who writes that his father, R. Hayyim Palache, said tikkun on Rosh Hodesh Av. This date is selected because it is the date of the death of Aaron, Kohen Gadol. The first part of the text is in square unvocalized letters, but from 19a on it is in rabbinic type.
Paragraph 2    לימוד לראש חודש אב ליקוטי אמרים... לכבוד ... הכהן הגדול אהרן... אסף המזכיר תנ"ך ומשנה וש"ס ומדרז"ל וזוה"ק [ומדרשי רז"ל וזוהר הקדוש]... שנת ו'ב'ר'כ'ת'י' אותה

סדר לימוד ליום פטירתו של אהרן הכהן. בהסכמה נאמר שר' חיים פאלאגי (אביו של המסכים) יזם אמירת התיקון ביום ראש חודש אב. בלתי מנוקד. הסכמה: ר' אברהם פאלאג'י, ראש חודש סיון תרל"ח.
