Description Information
   Only edition. [2], 117 ff., 330:202 mm., wide margins, light age and damp staining. A very good copy bound in contemporaryhalf marbled paper over boards, rubbed.
   Responsa from R. Nissam Raphael Isaac Zurianu, Chief Rabbi of Aden. The title page has a decorative border and states that it is to give to all inquiry, “between plea and plea” (Deuteronomy 17:8). The title is from “For you will light my candle (ta’ir neri)” (Psalms 18:29). The responsa are called by that name because within its value is an allusion to the names of the author. The title page is dated, “I will show the salvation of אראנו בישע (640 = 5635 = 1875) God” (Psalms 50:23). There is an eight paragraph introduction from the author’s son, Hayyim David Zurianu, in which the initial word of each paragraph begins ha-Yom. The text is in two columns in rabbinic type excepting headers and initial words which are in square letters. Orah Hayyim (1a-12b) is comprised of three responsa; Yoreh De’ah (12b-47b) of seven responsa; Even ha-Ezer (47b-57b) of three responsa; and Hoshen Mishpat (57b-107a) of eleven responsa. There are novellae on M. Kamma an likkutim. The volume concludes with an index of sources.
