   Rare tri-part work comprised of traditional and new material by R. Isaac Camos ben Ma’atok Azizi Hadadd. The title page describes Petah ha-Sha’ar as being comprised of three parts written by three authors. The first is a biography of the Rambmam and his Iggeret Teiman called by all Petah ha-Tikvah; secondly, Siah Yizhak, explanations and allusions on verses in the Bible, so entitled because it includes his name Isaac Camos, Sephardi Tahor; and lastly is a true account of what befell a child in the city of Zefakiiz, which he saw with his own eyes and heard with his ears in language pure and clear, as he could discern. He has entitled this part Loshon Lemudim because in it he began to express matters in our holy and glorious language. There is an approbation signed by several rabbis from Tunis, all Sephardi Tahor, an introduction from the author, and the text, in a single column in square letters with, in the first part, accompanying notes
