Description Information
   Only edition. [1], 4, 29 (should say 49), [1], ff., quarto, 254:170 mm., nice margins, usual age staining. A good copy bound in modern paper wrappers.
   Twenty-four discourses by R. Samuel ben Abraham Taeib (c. 1750-1830). Desirable homilies, their content inlaid with honey and milk (Song of Songs 4:11), with pleasant fruits (Song of Songs 5:13), set upon sockets (cf. Song of Songs 5:15) of fear of the Almighty. The Torah and its wisdom joined together, golden rings and bracelets are not of value, all desirable things do not compare. It is dated with the verse, Let her be like the loving hind and pleasant roe (Proverbs 5:19). However, the highlighted letters indicate a date of 1881, suggesting that letters from ayelet have been omitted, for its inclusion would give the correct date. That the date is wrong is clear from the authors introduction which is dated Rosh Hodesh Tevet 5670 (Monday, December 13, 1909). That introduction follows the title page, and immediately afterwards is a pesiha (second introduction). A list of the names of individuals who helped finance publication follows, and then the text, in two columns in rabbinic type. The derashot are on ethics and morals, on such topics as reward and punishment, Divine providence, repentance, the shame of sin, the distinction between natural and Divine healing, and seeking the peace of the state. The volume concludes with errata.
