Folio. 226 leaves. Contemporary half leather over modern paper covered boards. Illustrated title page with two fish and a scorpion. Decorated initials and tail piece. Talmud commentary by the early 17th century Polish scholar Rabbi Samuel Edels (Maharsha). "Novellae in Jewish Law" is an "incisive and keenly analytical" commentary on the Talmud, Rashi and Tosafot together, and with a focus on Tosafot. It is said that if one grasps the Maharsha, then one has understood the Tosafot. This commentary was quickly accepted and was printed in almost all editions of the Talmud. Chiddushei Halachot is based on Maharsha's teaching in his yeshiva, and he refrained from printing his commentary on those pages that were studied while he served on the Council of Four Lands. Text in Hebrew. Spine peeling; head and tail chipped. Handwritten notes on front free endpaper. Burn marks along top fore edge. Water marks. Overall in fair to good condition. Shmuel Eidels (1555-1631) was a renowned rabbi and Talmudist famous for his commentary on the Talmud, Chiddushei Halachot. Eidels is also known as Maharsha, a Hebrew acronym for "Our Teacher, the Rabbi Shmuel Eidels". Bookseller Inventory #
