Description Information
   First edition. 104 pp. quarto 200:1545 mm., nice margins, age and damp staining. A good copy loose in contemporary boards, rubbed.
   First edition of these discourses from R. Isaac ben Menahem Manish Danzig of Slonim. The title page informs that Bet Yitzhak is comprised of ten open sha’arim (gates) which separate into twenty discourses, and that this is part one. There is no indication, however, that a second part was ever printed, although R. Danzig was the author of a book of responsa, also entitled Bet Yitzhak. There are approbations from R. Judah Leib Landau, R. Eliezer Landau, R. Bezalel ha-Kohen, R. Menahem Nahum Jaffe, R. Alexander Moses Lapidus, R. Samuel ben Aaron, and R. Abraham Shick, followed by R. Danzig’s introduction etitled Tavnit ha-Bayyit and a brief preface from the editor, R. Shimon Moses ben Gedalia. Examples of the discourses are the first discourse in the first gate, which is on benedictions, explaining the beneficial time in which the patriarch Isaac blessed Jacob and giving a reason on the materialistic designations mentioned by the Torah. The second discourse in this gate explains why Isaac placed his right hand on the head of Esau the first born and the awareness of Rivka who guided his (Issac) hands the other way on the head of Jacob the younger. The twentieth discourse is a eulogy for R. Joel av bet din Sakalka.
