About this Item

Period boards, 8vo, 64 Leaves [i. E. 128 pages] Yiddish translation of Yehiel Mikhl Epstein's Kitsur Shene Luhot ha-Berit (Fürth, 1693 and 1696) , an abridged version of Isaiah Horowitz's extensive Shene Luhot ha-Berit (first published Amsterdam, 1649) , in which halakhah, homily, and Kabbalah are combined for the purpose of giving directions as to how to live an ethical life (EJ 2007) . Epstein made selections from Horowitz's work, adding glosses, references, rulings, accounts of customs that appear nowhere in the original, and his own pedagogical reflections. A Yiddish translation of Kitsur Shelah, by Wolf Gershels of Prague, appeared first under the title Ets Hayim in Frankfurt, 1720, and subsequently in 39 editions. No copies of this edition on OCLC. In worn contemporary quarter-leather binding, corners heavily bumped. Some worming to margins, with minimal loss of text. Paper is aged but not brittle; sewing intact. Stamp of Samuel Baruch Saunders on title page; stamp of the home for the aged he founded in the old city of Jerusalem on title page and some interior pages. Good condition. (RAB-60-7).
