Description Information
   Only edition. 98 ff., 330:210 mm., light age and damp staining, wide margins, old hands on title, blue paper. A very good copy not bound.
   Novellae by R. Eliezer ben Jacob Grajewer of Slonim. The title page informs that is the first work of R. Eliezer, on tractates Shabbat, Pesahim, Yevamot, and Bava Mezia. He prays that God will be pleased with his labors and exertions with the words of our holy rabbis; he should merit to bring to light additional novellae, which are currently in manuscript. The title page is dated with a chronogram from the verse “Great peace have those who love your Torah; and nothing can make them stumble” (Psalms 119:165). The final paragraph on the title page has a disclaimer that the non-Jews among whom the Jews dwell are not like those in the time of the Talmud. They were idol worshippers and cleaved to all kinds of abominations. In contrast, contemporary non-Jews, their neighbors, are God fearing and upright. The verso has several approbations, and after is R. Eliezer’s introduction, which he signs as Eliezer ben Jacob, son-in-law of R. Nahum Greiver of Slonim. There is a page of errata and then the text in two columns in rabbinic type, excepting headers and initial words. Mishnat Rabbi Eliezer is printed on a bluish paper.
