   Only edition. [4], 60 ff. folio 322:190 mm., wide margins, usual age staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary boards, rubbed.
   Only edition of these kellalim and novellae on Talmudic subjects by R. Abraham ben Simhah ha-Kohen Hollender. Tiferet Avraham has approbations from R. Joshua Horwoitz, R. Dov Berush ha-Kohen Rappoport, R. Shalom Mordecai ha-Kohen Schwartz, and R. Isaac Leib Sofer, followed by R. Hollender’s introduction. He begins in an unusual manner, by discussing the style of introductions, how authors assume a mantle of humility and state they are writing only for the public good. In contrast, R. Hollender writes that his neither praising nor denigrating his work which will have to be judged for its own value. He has entitled it Tiferet Avraham for his glory and delight is in Torah and novellae, “this was my portion of all my labor” (Ecclesiastes 2:10). There is an index of the novellae, consisting of forty-eight kellalim, followed by errata, and then the text, which is set in two columns in rabbinic type.
