Description Information
   Only edition. [4], 55, [1] pp. octavo 225:155 mm., usual age staining. A good copy bound as issued, rubbed.
   Only edition of these collected writings of R. Zevi Hirsch Moskowitz. The title page describes them as the precious thoughts, wondrous commentaries, and sayings of the sages, in a clear and witty style, in a pure and ethical spirit, taking hold of the heel of a verse or saying of the sages, as explained by the leading rabbis of the generation, compiled by R. Moskowitz. It enumerates R. Moskowitz’s other works, Berucha Meshuleshes, Seder Keriat ha-Nasi, and Kuntress Zikhron Ephraim. Marghita, the place of printing, is in Rumania. The verso of the outer rabbi, lists other works issued by R. Moskowitz’s press. There is a caution against mistaking references to akum and goi, where earlier peoples are intended, to contemporary peoples, and a warning against unauthorized reprintings. A listing of the sayings follows, an introduction, and then the text, in a single column in rabbinic type. The sayings collected by R. Moskowitz are indeed witty and make for enjoyable reading.
