Description Information
   First edition. [3], 2-93, [3] ff., 318:188 mm., usual light age and damp staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary boards, rubbed.
Paragraph 1    With the approbation of R. Jacob Emden.
   Important novellae to tractate Yevamot (dealing with levirate laws) by R. Solomon ben Jehiel Luria (Maharshal, c. 1510-64). Maharshal’s emendations, now appended to editions of the Talmud, are based on the second Bomberg Talmud.

The Maharshal was descended from a distinguished family, tracing his lineage to Rashi. His teachers were his father R. Jehiel and his maternal grandfather, R. Isaac Klober of Posen. Luria served as rabbi and head of the yeshiva in Ostrog, leaving after twenty years for Brisk and subsequently becoming a rosh yeshivah in the yeshiva of Shalom Shachna. In 1567, Maharshal founded his own yeshiva. His students include R. Mordecai Jaffe (Levush), Joshua Falk (Derishah u-Perishah), and Hayyim ben Bezalel. Maharshal was known for his intellectual independence.
