First section, authored by Rabbi Zvi Ashkenazi, father of the Ya’avetz. The Rav was one of the greatest Achronim and poskim, “GadolHaMorim” (according to the Hida). Born in 1648, he grew up in the shadow of the sages of Constantinople, was a fervent fighter against the cult of Shabtai Zvi, served as a rabbi in Amsterdam, and Lviv where he died. In the introduction he writes a little of his history and praises the people of Amsterdam, especially its printing houses “the likes of which are not to be found anywhere in Israel.” Printer: Haim Ben Zvi Hirsch of Furth, with a special decoration. [1], 62 pages. 32cm. Generally ok to good condition, moth damage.
