About this Item

Later Cloth, Folio, 27, 25, 12 leaves. In Hebrew. Printed on blue paper, as is typical of many Hebrew books published in 19th Century Ukraine. Brad Sabin Hill notes that "blue paper was cheaper than better-made white paper and therefore more accessible to indigent wandering printers . So many Hebrew books were printed on this blue or bluish paper that it became associated in popular imagination with old Hebrew books. The memory of this paper, which was used in the decades before and after 1800, remained vivid in the minds of writers born in Eastern Europe well into the 20th century" (GW Today, 2009) . Meir Ben Baruch of Rothenburg (c. 1215 1293) , was a "teacher, scholar, tosafist, and supreme arbiter in ritual, legal, and community matters in Germany. He was born in Worms into a family of scholars, many members of which were important leaders in the communities of Germany. In his responsa he mentions two uncles and 12 other relatives bearing the title Ha-Rav, a title reserved, in this period, for talmudic scholars of high standing, mainly for heads of yeshivot. Meir often quotes their opinions and legal decisions in order to bolster his own views; hence they must have been well-known and highly esteemed scholars. Meir's father Baruch was an outstanding member of this scholarly family. He was credited with a wide knowledge of talmudic lore, was a member of the bet din of the community of Worms, and was often chosen to act as judge" (Agus in EJ, 2007) . SUBJECT(S) : Responsa -- 1040-1600. OCLC lists 11 copies worldwide. Some moisture damage to boards, paper and internal binding very good with some staining, overall Good+ Condition. (kh-5-30) Rab12.
