Description Information
   31 ff., 8°, 168:115 mm., light age staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary paper over boards, rubbed.
   Rare work on prayers to be said at times of peril by R. David ben Judah Sabibi. The title, Mazil Nefashot, is from “[A true witness] saves lives” (Proverbs 14:25). The censors permission to print is at the bottom of the page. The book is set in square vocalized letters, excepting the introduction by R. Sabibi, which is unvocalized. Mazil Nefashot is comprised of Tefillat ha-Yam of the Ramban (R. Moses ben Nahman), Tefillat ha-Derekh of the Ramban, a prayer to be said at a time of plague, Tefillat Yahid of R. Eleazer ha-Kalir, a prayer to be recited when the Torah is taken out, by a person sitting in prison, concluding with a supplication. This is a small attractive volume, not to be found in most major collections.

R. David Sabibi’s name also appears on the responsa Toldot Adam of the Rashba, as having brought that work to press (Leghorn, 1657).

Paragraph 2    ... הביאו אל הדפוס [ונערך על ידי]... ר' דוד סביבי... נדפס מחדש לתשוקת... גד בן... שמואל פואה...

על פי ויניציאה תכ"ד עם שינויים קלים בראש ההקדמה. פועל הדפוס: בנימין ב"ר אהרן פולאקו.
