Description
   First edition of this homiletic commentary on the book of Psalms through Psalm 41 by R. David ben Joseph ha-Kohen (Katz) av bet din in Krotoschin and a descendant on his fathers side of R. Joshua Falk (c. 15551614) and on his mothers side of R. Joel Sirkes, (BaH , 15611640). Included are marvelous tales of sages. The title page has a frame made up of rows of varied florets. It states that he has taken from earlier sages, the Talmud, and wondrous midrashim. He also makes reference to his many other works. There are eight approbations from leading rabbis, among them R. Ezekiel Landau (17131793, Noda bi-Yhudah) and then R. Katzs introduction. He relates that he called the work Paamonei Zahav so that people will do, and his sound shall be heard (Exodus 28:35) and he will merit that people will not come to sin. Below is a woodcut the width of the page. The text is in two columns in rabbinic type, excepting headers and initial words which are in square letters. At the end of the volume after the colophon is a second woodcut, also the width of the page. There are owners stamps on the front end paper and title page and an owners signature on the title page.
