Fundamental sefer on the laws and customs of marriage, by R. Refoel Ben Chizkiyahu Midola. Received to great acclaim, for generations this sefer has served as an essential handbook for both scholars and layman.
At the beginning of the sefer there are numerous interesting poems and approbations. Each page is surrounded by a decorative frame. On pages 84-87, there are diagrams demonstrating the Halachic requirements for building a Mikveh. Bound into the sefer (at the beginning of the Chuppa ceremony) is a curious handwritten document, annulling any curses that there may be on the groom or the bride.
Vinograd Livorno 424. [19], 88, 88-111 pages. 15.5 cm. Excellent condition. One page slightly rubbed with minor loss of text. Antique binding.
Opening bid $150
