Description Information
   First edition. 76; 36, 24 ff., 348:217 mm., wide margins, usual light age staining, light blue paper. A very good copy bound in contemporary leather boards, split.
   Two independent works bound together. The first title is Shaar Mishpat, part II on Shulhan Arukh Hoshen Misphat. The title page is dated, love the good, and establish justice in the gate (572 = 1812) (Amos 5:15). Thee is a brief introduction from the author on the verso of the title page and below it the disclaimer that references goim or other terms from the Talmud do not pertain to contemporary gentiles. The text begins with S. A. H. M. no. 96 and concludes with no. 424. The text is in two columns in rabbinic type, excepting headers and initial words. Shaar Mishpat is printed on more than one paper stock, the greater a bluish paper. Section headings are enclosed in a decorative border.

The second work is Beer Avraham, novellae on the Talmud, from R. Abraham ben Judah Leib Maskileison. The title page describes it as halakhic novellae on the entire Talmud, this being part one on tractate Berakhot and Seder Moed. This is the only part, however, to be published. The title page describes its contents in poetic terms, and relates that R. Abraham was also the author of Maskil Leison (A Maskil of Ethan, Psalms 89:1). The verso of the title page has two introductions from the author, followed by the novellae, in two columns in rabbinic type, excepting headers and initial words. The novellae cover tractates Berakhot and tractates in Moed. Beer Avraham concludes with brief novellae on the bottom of the final page from R. Abrahams son.
