   Selections from the works of rishonim and aharonim (early and later sages) on the goodness of Erez Israel and Jerusalem, its fruit, neighborhoods, and the important burial places there by R. Sharaga Feivel ben Aaron Rozenman. The title page includes that information and further informs that is intended to satisfy, “a handful with quietness” (Ecclesiastes 4:6) the righteous hearts, of the goodness of the land and of Jerusalem, with these words. He includes the names of the holy cities and villages, before and now, deeds and customs through the generations, “their foundation is in the holy mountains” (cf. Psalms 87:1). The verso of the title has a warning against hasagut gevul (unauthorized republication) with a vignette of the Western Wall at the bottom of that page. There is an introduction from the author, and approbations from R. Hayyim ben Naftali Zevi Judah Berlin (Neziv), R. Abrham ha-Kohen Kook, R. Ezekiel Panet, R. Hayyim Isaac Yaruham, and as te’udah from R. Samuel Luria. Next is a blessing from the printers and then the text. The volume is comprised of Tiferet Yerusahalyim in two columns at the top of the page, and below it in a single column Imrei Shefer, the latter being applicable dinim. A small photograph of Tiberius is on 33b and vignettes of Kever Rahel and Ma’arat Machpelah on 45b.
