About this Item

Octavo. [3], 39 pp. Original three quarter leather over decorative paper-covered boards. Decorative ruling of title page. First and only edition of these homilies by R. Joseph Elhanan ben Meir le-Beit ha-Levi. Einot Mayim is comprised of seven discourses, each beginning with the word "mai", on Halakhah (Jewish law) and Aggadah. The text of the title page states that, "fountains abounding with water" Mishle (8:24) flowing in my writings described as "pools of water" (cf. Kohelet 2:6) and continues in this fashion, emphasizing the word and concept of mayim. The back of the title page has the approval of J. Tugenhold, the censor, to be published, dated 1856. There are approbations from eight rabbis, among them R. Meir Auerbach, R. Jehiel Heller, and R. Jacob Zevi Nickolsburg. Introduction by the author entitled Penei ha-Mayim. The text follows, in two columns, except headers and initial words in the typical rabbinical style of writing. It is accompanied by Nahal ha-Beshor as an occasional insert of the bottom of each page, by Shephat Mayim. R. Joseph Elhanan writes in a clear and slightly ironic style, making these learned discourses particularly enjoyable. Text in Hebrew (Rashi script). Binding heavily rubbed off at covers, spine partially missing. Handwritten inked name signature at decorative title page. Front cover and first three pages partially detached from block. Age-toning, sporadic staining, rippled through exposure to humidity; a few single pages loose but present. Free rear endpaper with inked notes, half the page torn off. Binding in poor, interior in fair to good condition. Bookseller Inventory # 39539
