   First edition. [4], 72, [2]; 94 pp. 272:190 mm., wide margins, usual light age staining, stamp on title and several ff. A very good copy bound in modern cloth boards
   Two works printed and bound together, each with its own title page, by R. Zev Wolff ben Abraham Landau and by his son Mordecai Mottel. The first title, Zar Zahav: Keter Torah is described on the title page as a work that illuminates as sapphire, sparkles as lightning, on the order of the parshiot and festivals, that until now was hidden and concealed. In it are profound thoughts both revealed and esoteric (niglah ve-sodot), pure novellae on the Torah, from R. Zev of Strykov (סטריקאוו) the son of the Admor, R. Abraham of טשעכאנאווע. A second title page follows, listing this work and the second title. There is an approbation from R. Abraham [Bernstein] of Sakatchov, a warning against unauthorized republication, and an introduction from R. Mordecai Mottel. The text is in two columns in rabbinic type, excepting headers and initial words, and covers the weekly Torah reading and festivals. It concludes with an addenda of additional material.

The second work is Dorash Tov, by R. Mordecai Mottel. It is on the Torah, midrashim, aggadah, prophets, and writings, and some suggyot of shass. The material is both explicit and deep, that the author heard from leading sages. The subject matter of Dorash Tov is also the weekly Torah readings and festivals.
