Description Information
   Only edition. [3], 188 ff., 278:198 mm., light age and damp staining, old hand on title. A good copy loose in contemporary boards.
   Halakhic work by R. Judah ben Moses Eli, primarily on Orah Hayyim but also covering Yoreh De’ah, following the order of the Shulhan Arukh. The attractive title page is unusual in that the text, set within a Sephardic border comprised of stars, begins each of its twelve lines of text with an inverted hand pointing to the first enlarged letter of each line, which is an anagram of the author’s name, spelling הקטן יאודה עלי, the youth Yuda Eli. Below is the date, given with the verse, “The staff shall not depart from Judah” (Genesis 49:10) with יהודה again spelled יאודה. The verso of the title page has approbations from R. Joseph ibn Ya’ish, R. Abraham ben Benveniste Gatinin, and R. Hayyim Joseph ben Ezriel ha-Kohen Ardot, dated 15 Elul 558 (Monday, August 27, 1798). Next is R. Eli’s introduction, followed by the text, which is in two columns in rabbinic type, excepting headers and initial words, which are in square letters. The volume concludes with an index. Great emphasis is placed on the rulings of R. Hayyim Joseph David Azulai’s (Hida) Birkei Yosef.
