Classics. Neveh Shalom. First Edition! Constantinople 1538 Extremely Rare. Variant Copy
Fascinating sefer with a series of homilies on the Aggadic passages in the Talmud, interwoven with a discussion which serves as a defense of the RaMBaM’s reconciliation of Greek philosophy and Jewish thought by R. Sholom Avraham of Constantinople.
The author R. Sholom Avraham of Constantinople (died 1492), had a thorough command of many areas of learning of his period and this work is rich in references to Greek and Arabic philosophical literature.
Variant Copy: According to Yaari, there are 24 signatures of 8 leaves each, with an additional 2 leaves at the end of the book, for a total of ff. 194. However, in our copy, signature 12 has ten leaves, for a total of ff. 196.
Stefansky Hebrew Classics page 142. Vinograd Constantinople 162. Soncino press. 196 pages. 21 cm. Very fine condition. Some staining. Modern leather binding.
With unidentified rabbinical signatures and glosses.
Opening bid $2000
