   Only edition. [2], 179 ff. folio 218:330 mm., wide margins, usual light age staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary boards, rubbed.
   Only edition of these halakhic novellae on Shulhan Arukh Hoshen Mishpat by R. Raphael ben Mordecai Ankawa. The title page is followed by the approbation of R. Nahman Betito and then R. Ankawas introduction. He writes that the work is entitled Paamonei Zahav because it deals with matters of silver and gold, that is monetary issues. Paamonei Zahav is a comprehensive work on a complex subject. The volume concludes with addenda and, from 173b, Tikkun Sofrim, this last on the laws of deed. On the last page of the book is an attractive oversized copperplate press-mark of Jerusalem and the Western Wall.

R. Raphael ben Mordecai Ankawa (18481935) was a Moroccan rabbi. R. Ankawa was born in Salé, a descendant of an illustrious Sephardi family. He received an excellent traditional religious education from his father-in-law, R. Issachar Asseraf, the chief rabbi of Salé. His great authority made him the uncontested leader of Moroccan Jewry. In 1880 R. Ankawa was appointed dayyan in Salé. In 1918 he became president of the Supreme Rabbinical Court in Rabat, the supreme court of Moroccan Jewry, after the reorganization of Moroccan Jewish communities by French Protectorate authorities. R. Ankawa held this post until his death. In 1929 he was made a Chevalier of the Legion of Honor. His tomb in the Salé cemetery became a shrine for Moroccan Jewish pilgrims. He wrote, in addition to Pa'amonei Zahav the following halakhic works: Karnei Re'em (1910) and To'afot Re'em (1930), and a book of talmudic glosses entitled Hadad ve-Teima (in manuscript form).
