Fundamental sefer Kabolah authored by R. Chaim Vital (1542-1620) with teachings he received from his Rebbe the Arizal.
With approbations by R. Yitzchak Issac Ha’Cohen Rav of Koritz and Ostrog and R. Yosef Maggid of Ostrog.
Although with the advent of the printing press many seforim were printed on a great variety of topics, for many years Sifrei Kabolah continued to be handwritten. This was primarily as a means to ensure they would not fall into unworthy hands. It was not until much later that Sifrei Kabolah were printed. This Sefer Eitz Chaim is one of earlier printed Sifrei Kabolah.
Vinograd Koritz 54. Krieger press. 132 pages. 35 cm. Overall good condition. Some wear to title page reinforced with tape. Some foxing. Modern binding.
Opening bid $300
