Description Information
   Only edition. [2], 100 ff., folio, 297:182 mm., wide margins, usual light age and damp staining, stamps. A very good copy bound in modern half cloth and cloth boards.
   Only edition of these halakhic novellae on Maimonides Mishneh Torah and R. Joseph Caros Kesef Mishneh on the subject of laws relating to non-Jews by R. Samuel ben Meir Sornagah. The title page, with an oriental frame of florets states that it is, the sum of money (parashat kesef) (Esther 4:7) that goes around and speaks on the words of the Rambam and Kesef Mishneh on Hilkhot Akum. The title page is dated with the verse, the Lord will bless his people with peace (Psalms 29:11). There are approbations from R. Isaac Levi of Salonika and R. Raphael Kohen, followed by the introduction of R. Joseph ben Meir Sornagah, the authors brother, in which each of its seven paragraphs concludes Samuel. The authors introduction is next, and then the text in two columns in rabbinic letters. The text are based on discourses given by R. Sornagah, as sections are dated, for example, the first chapter was given on the end of Sukkot 1752, the last, chapter twelve, was given on 4 Nissan 1752. Although the dates of the chapters fall within one year, they must be the dates of delivery, for it is difficult to believe that such a large, complex, and scholarly work, normally the product of many years, could be prepared in such a short time. Parashat Kesef concludes with indexes and errata.
