Shulchan Oruch Yoreh De’ah, with two primary commentaries by R. Yonason Eibeschutz.
This was his first published sefer and the only one printed in his lifetime. In his introduction, the author includes important biographical information, the titles of his other seforim (he hopes to print) as well as information regarding the well-known controversy between him and R. Yaakov Emden.
R. Yonason Eibeschutz (1690-1764), was orphaned from his father as a child. He was raised by R. Meir Eisenstadt (Ponim Me’iros). He served initially as Rosh Yeshiva in Prague and in 1741, was appointed as Rov in Metz succeeding R. Yehoshua Falk (Pnei Yehoshua). In 1750 he was appointed as Rav of the joint communities of Altona, Hamburg and Wandsbeck (AHU) where he served until his passing. One of the greatest Achronim, he authored over thirty seforim on a wide range of subjects.
With the signature of R. Hertz Scheir, Rov of Mainz.
