Description Information
   Only edition. 2 volumes, [4], 243, [1]; [4], 220 ff., 230:168 mm., wide margins, usual light age and damp staining, old stamps. A very good copy bound in contemporary boards, rubbed.
   The Author's first work, a commentary on the Mishnah. The somewhat sharp language employed in the first part in criticizing contemporary scholars gave rise to friction between the Author and R. David Corinaldi and R. Mas'ud Rokeah in Leghorn. But after he mitigated his language in the second part and published an apology, a reconciliation took place.

R. David Samuel b. Jacib Pardo (1718–1790), rabbinical author and poet, was born in Venice, he went to Sarajevo for a time as a result of a dispute over an inheritance, and from there to Spalato, in Dalmatia. From approximately 1738 he was appointed rabbi of the town. From 1760 he was rabbi of Sarajevo. From 1776 to 1782 he traveled to Erez Israel, settling in Jerusalem where he served as head of the yeshiva Hesed le-Avraham u-Vinyan Shelomo. Pardo was regarded as one of Jerusalem's great rabbis. Of his many works his series of commentaries and novellae on tannaitic literature are especially original.
