Description
   Forged title. While the title states Dubno as place of printing, it remains doubtful where the book was printed. Commentary to the Torah portion Bereshit, each section (tikkun) beginning with a new interpretation of the word bereshit ("in the beginning"). The work was designed to contain 70 tikkunim, confirming to "the 70 aspects of the Torah." The volume is many times referred to as part five of the Zohar. Includes cross-references and Derekh Emet. On the final leaves appears a commentary published from R. Hayyim Vital’s autograph who copied it from a manuscript of the Ar”i z”l.
