Description Information
   Revised and enlarged edition. [1], 28; [1], 96 ff. quarto 213:178 mm., wide margins, light age and use staining. A good copy bound in later boards, rubbed.
   Two-part work comprised of tales of guile about individuals who thought to achieve through flattery and wiliness but instead, after achieving the heights lost their glory and their foolishness was revealed by R. Samuel Aryeh ben Elijah Zahalom. The first part is entitled Aderet Sha’ar, the second, with its own title page and foliation, Or ki-Salmah. The title page states, concerning the first part, that one is able to see which midah or practice (conduct) is good as every thing can be recognized from its opposite. “Therefore it shall come to pass” (Genesis 12:12) that he did not do well and it will be remembered for shame. One should recognized and know to go in the true way and be remembered with praise. The author hopes that by reading this work the reader’s heart will be drawn to the second part, Or ki-Salmah. Below this text ism in a smaller font, a brief description in German, and then a disclaimer as to references concerning such terms as Akum, etc. There are approbations from R. Eliezer Flaklish, R. Samuel Segal Landau, and R. Jacob Larberbaum. The text of both parts are in two columns in rabbinic type.
