   Rare edition of this super-commentary on the Shulhan Arukh Orah Hayyim by R. Aboody Yahya Moses. The title page describes it as part one of ha-Shakh on Meginei ha-Eretz and states that it is intended to explain the geonim Magen David (R. David ben Samuel ha-Levi (Taz)]) and Magen Avraham (R. Abraham Abele ha-Levi Gombiner). R. Aboody writes that he knows he is not worthy even to understand their words but that he undertakes it with the help of the Lord. There are approbations from R. Jacob Saul Eliyashar and R. Elijah David Rabbinowitz Teomim followed by a depiction of a menorah with accompanying symbols of service in the Temple that was printed earlier with books of kabbaistic content, the author’s introduction. R. Aboody states that he must make known that among his purpose is not the halakhah but rather and only expertise and sharpness, to cause God and man to rejoice. The text, as stated, is a super-commentary on the above-mentioned major commentators on the Shulhan Aruch O.H. At the end of Magen Be’adi are errata not noted Bibliographic description of Magen Be’adi. This work is not noted in the Bet Eked Sepharim nor is it in several major collections of Judaica.
