Description
   R. Elijah ibn Hayyim (1530?–1610?), rabbi and halakhist, known as Maharanah or Morenu ha-Rav ibn Hayyim. R. Elijah was born in Adrianople and in about 1575 was appointed chief rabbi of Constantinople. His writings - including novellae, discussions on most of the tractates of the Talmud, and responsa - were stolen, but some were recovered and published. They comprise: Teshuvot ha-Ranah (Constantinople, 1810), responsa, with an appendix consisting of novellae on tractate Ketubbot published by his disciple, R. Isaac di Leon; Mayim Amukim (this lot), responsa, together with others by R. Elijah Mizrahi; Ha-Noten Imrei Shefer (Venice, 1630), homilies on the Pentateuch (the first edition entitled Mikhtav me-Eliyahu (Constantinople, 1624) was probably incomplete).
