Sefer Mishlei im Biur MiRabbeinu Emmanuel MiRoma. Naples, Yosef ben Ya'akov Ashkenazi Guntzenhozer Press. 1487. Incunable.

The text of Mishlei appears in vowelized block letters, surrounded by the commentary in Rash"i script. First edition of this commentary.

The Chid"a recommended this commentary as the best commentary on Mishlei, as he wrote in Shem HaGedolim, Me'arechet Sefarim II, Kuntress Acharon, Ot Aleph: 'I heard that they say the commentary to read on Iyov is the Ralba"g; it will quench his thirst, and on Mishlei, one should read Peirush Emmanuel and for Tehillim, Peirush HaRada"k.'

Antique inscription on the first leaf.

Moshe Chalfin's stamp.
