   Only edition. 160 ff., 295:195 mm., wide margins, usual age and damp staining, old hands and stamps on title, ff. 33-34 misbound. A very good copy bound in modern half cloth boards.
   Novellae by R. Baruch Angel, rav in Salonika. The title page, in an attractive ornamental border, is dated “you are now the blessed עתה ברוך (477=1717) of the Lord” (Genesis 26:29). From the title page it is clear that R. Engel’s responsa are being published posthumously. Hiddushei ha-Rav is novellae on selected chapters in Bava Kamma, Bava Mezia, Ketubbot, Gittin, Shevu’ot, and Hullin. The text is in two columns on rabbinic letters, excepting headers and initial words which are in square letters.

R. Baruch Angel (1595–1670), talmudist, preacher, and kabbalist in Salonika, was one of the outstanding scholars of his age. He was a student of R. Asher ha-Kohen ben Ardut and later became head of the Talmud Torah Yeshivah; his students included R. David Conforte, R. Solomon b. Samuel Florentin, and R. Isaac Florentin. In 1651, R. Angel was one of the seven foremost scholars of the city. He signed a regulation dealing with a tax on clothing. He was invited to accept the appointment of rabbi of Smyrna but refused, because he was unwilling to encroach upon the domain of the incumbent rabbi. In addition to Hiddushei ha-Rav R. Angel wrote responsa, glosses to the Shulhan Arukh, Hoshen Mishpat, the latter included in the Doresh Mishpat (Salonika, 1650) of his disciple, R. Solomon Florentin. A work on tractates Ketubbot and Shevu'ot exists in manuscript in the Israel National Library.
