Novellae on the laws of Shabbat, by R. Raphael Meisels. Frankfurt on the Oder, Prof. Garilla’s widow’s press. 1767. 142 leaves. 32 cm.
Here is the very rare first edition of this classic work on the laws of Shabbat. It is printed alongside the text of the Shulchan Aruch and bears many important approbations, among them R. Yechezkel Landau, author of Noda B’Yehuda of Prague, R. Shaul Levenstam of Amsterdam, and also R. Pinchas Halevi Horowitz, the Baal Haflaah, printed at the end of the work. The section on the laws of Eruvin includes diagrams. The author, R. Raphael Meisels, was the Rabbi of Poryck, and his work was accepted as a classic authority on the laws of Shabbat. The Chafetz Chaim, among others, quotes his opinion, in the Mishna Bverura.
In good but used condition, with some worming, primarily in the margins.
