Paragraph 1    The copy of R. Hayyim Joseph Mamon (1858-1925), rabbi of Oran and several Moroccan towns, with his inscription on title and stamped. He passed on and was buried in his birthplace.
   Responsa by R. Solomon ben Jehiel Luria (Maharshal, c. 1510-64), known for his numerous schjolarly works on Talmud and halakhah. Of note, the Hokhmat Shelomo, emendations to the Talmud, now appended to all editions of the Talmud. Many of Marshal’s emendations, have been incorporated into the text of the Talmud, so that the development of our Talmud owes a great deal to Hokhmat Shelomo. 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 yeshiva in the yeshiva of R. Shalom Shachna. In 1567, Maharshal founded his own yeshiva. His students include R. Mordecai Jaffe (Levush), R. Joshua Falk (Derishah u-Perishah), and R. Hayyim ben Bezalel. Maharshal was known for his intellectual independence.
Paragraph 2    מעבר לשער: אמר המדפיס... הגם שנדפסו זה פעמים... ראיתי שהשני תשובות לא ראי זה כראי זה שבכל אחד חסר שני תשובות המועילות. ואני חברתי אותם... והנה אנה ה' לידי תשובות הלזו ובסופו נכתב יחוס של ... המחבר... וזה לשונו... השתלשלות יחוס לוריא עד רש"י... נאום... אהרן בן מהור"ר משה (לוריא). שתי התשובות החסרות הן: סימן יב בהוצאה הראשונה וסימן ב בהוצאה השנייה. עיין למעלה.
