Classic: Sefer Turei Even, Metz 1781. First Edition.
A complete copy of Sefer Turei Even, first edition. Written R. Aryeh Leib Ginsburg (1695-1785), commonly known as the “Sha’agas Aryeh” after his magnum opus responsa work entitled Shaagas Ayreh. Turei Even contains novellae on tractates Rosh Hashanah, Chagigah and Megillah. A most fundamental and sought after work, and has been reprinted dozens of times ever since its release.
The Shaagas Aryeh merited a very long life. According to legend, at the age of 90, a bookcase fell on him, covering him with books. His students were able to rescue him after an hour or so, and he related to them that he had been covered by the books of the authors with whom he had quarreled. He had asked forgiveness from all of them and they all complied - except for one, R. Mordecai Yoffe (known as the Levush) who refused. A short time later, he passed away.
In good condition. Headers trimmed, sometimes with loss.
