Description Information
   Second edition, revised. [3], 219 ff., 310:200 mm., wide margins, light damp staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary vellum boards, later spine.
   Commentary on the Torah. The Author is the first to remark that covetousness is by no means unconquerable. Man can master this as well as all other passions. "Covetousness is a matter of the heart" (Deut. v. 21). Special precaution should therefore be exercised by man not to permit covetousness to master him.

R. Jacob b. Abraham Fidanque (d. 1701), revised and published this second edition. An English scholar, he was one of the first Jews after the Return to busy himself with the study of rabbinic literature. He is the author of notes on the commentary to the Earlier Prophets by Don Isaac Abravanel, published with the text, Hamburg, 1686.
