   First edition of this compilation of halakhic decisions on ethical subjects by R. Menahem ben Abraham Treves. There are approbations from R. Solomon Zev ben Reuben Moses Klein and R. Raphael Veramsar, followed by R. Treves’ introduction. The heading of the introduction (mevo מבא) stands for the author’s initials. The text is organized alphabetically by subject. The halakhot is at the top of the page in square letters and concisely stated in clear language. Below the halkhot is a detailed commentary in rabbinic letters. At the side of the text references, for example, to Talmudic tractates. At the end of the volume is a table of contents listing the thirty five chapter entries, and then errata. The subject matter encompasses fear and love of G-d; respect for people, not to embarrass others; arrogance, not to be a tale bearer, not to lie, not to curse; acts of kindness; anger; vengeance and grudges; jealousy; advice; guile; not to mislead others; joy; transgression; Talmudic sages; and peace.
