   Novellae on tractates by R. Reuben Zelig ben Israel Eliezer. The title page states that it is hiddushim and desirable be’urim on בגפ"ת [gemara, Rashi, and Tosafot] according to the Rambam and other poskim. The title page has a decorative border and, between the Hebrew and Latin text, a device comprised of flags, drums, and shields. The Latin text gives publication information and the censor’s approval. It is dated with a chronogram from, “Only be strong and very courageous” (Joshua 1:7, 18). On the verso of the title page and the following page are approbations signed by ten rabbis. There is an introduction from the author, the caution against confusing contemporary gentiles with those from an earlier period when terms such as akum or nocri are used. The page is competed with a woodcut of a man reclining next to a lion who is on a chain held by a winged cherub. The text begins with Hiddushei Eruvin, and includes novellae on Pesahim, Bezah, Yoma, Yevamot, and Temurah. There are also brief novellae on Hullin and an addenda. A tail-piece has two winged cherubs within a ornamental frame. The text is in two columns in rabbinic type excepting headers and initial words. Printed on very fine paper.
