Description:

Folio. [6], 270pp. Modern half calf over paper covered boards, with gold lettering and ruling on spine. Each page printed in two columns within a linear border with decorated incipits and tailpieces. The Almenara de la Luz was produced in a large, handsome format, intended as adornment for the libraries of prosperous ex-Marranos (E. Carlebach). The author, Isaac Aboab lived in Toledo circa 1300. His Hebrew work, Menorath HaMe'or ["The Candelabrum of Light,"] a classic ethical work, became immensely popular. The translator, Jacob Hagiz (1620-74), reached out to the Marranos returning to the fold of the Jewish People. If in other halachic works, Hagiz adopted a rather harsh stance to those who had once converted to Christianity, in this work he is all for reconciliation. See E. Carlebach, The Pursuit of Heresy (1990). Publisher's mispagination with pages 251 to 254 numbered 301 to 304. Boards heavily rubbed along edges. Title partly lacking (inlaid and completed by hand). Ex-library stamp on title and at bottom of last page. Pages 265-266 crudely repaired, and one column absent from last two leaves. Text in Spanish. Binding in overall good- (boards) to very good (spine), interior in good condition. Bookseller Inventory #
