Description Information
   Only edition. [5] 70; [2] 30 pp., octavo, 200:125 mm., usual age staining. A very good copy bound in the original half cloth boards.
   Two works, novellae and on prayer, printed together, by R. Sasi ben Hoati ha-Kohen. The first title, Parochet ha-Mesekh, is novellae and explanations of the Talmud and the poskim. The author entitled it Parochet ha-Mesekh because it is novellae on Talmudic tractates and because his name is alluded to in the word ha-Mesekh, that is, מ from me, ה the young man, ס Sassi כ Kohen. He has done so in keepingwith the Rokeah (R. Eleazer ben Judah of Worms, c. 1165-c. 1230) who said that one should allude to his name in a book. On the verso the author’s name is given in Roman letters as R. Sasi Cohen H. Srira. There are approbations from R. Joseph Bokhritz, R. Rahamim Hai Hovita ben Hannania ha-Kohen, R. Calpon Moses ha-Kohen, R. Maklif Aidan, and R. Hayyim Hori. There is an introduction form the author and several dedicatory pages, a lsit of those who financed the book, and then the text in a single column in rabinic type. The novellae are primarily on Pesahim but also on Bezah. The second work, Sha’arei Tefilah, is based on Kesher Gadol by R. Hayyim Joseph David Azulai (Hida, 1724-1806) and the Ben Ish Hai by R. Joseph Hayyim (Ben Ish Hai, c. 1835-1909). It is primarily concerned with morning prayers, zizit, benedictions,answering Amen, Kriat Shema, the Amidah, Geshem and Tal u-Matar, and at the end laws pertaining to other tefilot.
