About this Item

83 leaves, complete. Excellent modern binding in a 16th century style, with mylar sleeve. Several pages have small holes affecting a few words. Staining. Rubber stamp impression of previous owner on several pages. Eliezer Aschkenazi (1512-1586) held influential positions in widely scattered Jewish communities from Egypt, Cyprus and Italy to the major centers of Poland. He died in Cracow. His Biblical exegesis is permeated with contemporary rationalistic spirit of rabbinic scholarship. Indeed Aschkenazi attacked Rabbi Judah Loew (Mahara"l) of Prague's Gevuroth Hashem in his work on the Torah, Ma'asei Ado-nai. R. Loew was quick to respond, considering Aschkenazi's rationalist portrayal of the Divinity in conflict with Kabbalah and therefore in contempt of the authentic Jewish tradition. See R. Loew, Derech Chaim on the Ethics of the Fathers. Recently, R. Shlomo Brevda, an expert in the writings of Elijah, Gaon of Vilna, encouraged a reprint of Yoseph Lekach, observing that many of the Vilna Gaon's comments on the Scroll of Esther are reminiscent of Aschkenazi's. This edition of Yosef Lekach, was the last Hebrew book printed in Cremona, which for a little over twenty years was a center of Jewish learning and printing, amidst the rigid censorship of the Church. On the Hebrew press at Cremona, see D. Amram, The Makers of Hebrew Books in Italy (1963), pages 306-319. References: Cowley, 82; Steinschneider, M. Cat. librorum hebraeorum, 41, 236/[a] & b; Wolf, J.C. Bibliotheca Hebraea, vol. 1, p. 171, no. 269. Bookseller Inventory # 005950
