Description Information
   164, [6] ff., quarto, 210:160 mm., wide crisp margins, light age and damp staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary marbled paper over boards, rubbed.
Paragraph 1    Printers in the final year of the Author's life.
   Halakhic code written by R. Joseph Caro, similar in form to the Arba'ah Turim of R. Jacob b. Asher, but more concise and without stating any sources. The book is in fact a halakhic synopsis of R. Caro's previous commentary on the Turim, the Beit Yosef. It is divided into the same four major sections as the former: Orah Hayyim, concerning the daily commandments, Sabbaths, and the festivals; Yoreh De'ah, dealing with various subjects, such as dietary laws, interest, purity, and mourning; Even ha-Ezer, on marriage, divorce, and related topics; and Hoshen Mishpat, dealing with civil and criminal law.
Paragraph 2    (והוגה... ע"י... ר' חייא מפיס יצ"ו)...

בשערים ציור של שני כתרים ומתחתם שני עלי זית והאותיות ע ח. על-פי וויניציאה שכ"ה-שכ"ו. [ד]: חושן המשפט. של"ד. קסד, [6] דף. קולופון: "ברוך ה' אשר עזרנו... להשלים הספר... על ידי... ר' חייא פיס' יצ"ו בשם המחזיק על ידי עושי המלאכה... כמ' חיים ן' סרוג יצ"ו. ותהי השלמתו היום יום ו ב סיון... של"ד". ב סיון של"ד חל בשבת.
