   Tales and divrei Torah by R. Solomon ben Eliezer Gur-Aryeh (d. 1952) of Ustilug, Ukraine. The title page describes it as precious rubies, wondrous matters, delightful tales, enlightening words of Torah, bright as stones of sapphire and diamonds from well known geonim and zaddikim which have not been previously published. The title page also expresses the wish that all who look into it, whether rabbis, students, or ba’alei battim, will be have spiritual delight. There is an introduction from R. Gur-Aryeh who references his previous work, Binyan Shelomo, on Bereshit and Shemot according to Pardes, also with novellae on the Talmud. He is a holocaust survivor and, quoting several gemaras, explains why he isnot bringiong out a work emphasizing midrash. There are approbations from R. Isaac Eizek ha-Levi Herzog, R. Ben Zion Hai Uziel, and R. Issur Judah Unterman. Next is an index and then the text, in a single column in square letters. This appears to be the only edition of Sharsheret Zahav.
