Detail Description

Novellae to several tractates by R. Jedidiah Galante b. Moses (17th century), scholar and emissary. From 1607 to 1613 R. Galante visited the Italian communities as an emissary of Safed, possibly on behalf of its Italian community to which his family belonged. During his travels he wrote several halakhic responsa in reply to problems addressed to him and relayed the remarkable deeds attributed to R. Isaac Luria (the Ari). In 1608 he published in Venice the responsa of his father, R. Moses Galante. When some Italian Jews, who objected to one of Jedidiah's rulings on a subject that divided the rabbis of Italy, accused him of embezzling the donations for Erez Israel, he took dramatic action. On a Sabbath in Elul 1609, after his sermon to a large Venetian congregation before which he had been invited to preach, he took a Scroll of the Law from the Ark and in the presence of the whole congregation swore to his complete innocence. The incident, which made a profound impression, was publicized by the lay leaders and rabbis of Venice in a specially printed notice circulated among the Italian communities.

Wilhermsdorf was a center of Hebrew printing in Bavaria, where Isaac b. Judah Loeb Yuedels set up a press in 1669 with staff recruited from Prague, among them his daughters as setters and a son-in-law as proofreader. Another Prague printer, Israel Meir, set up a press in 1712 but sold it the same year to Hirsch b. Hayyim of Fuerth, whose son worked later in Fuerth, printing until 1739. Hirsch cultivated book decorations: his printer's mark was the tree with the serpent and a crab and a lion on each side; the title page showed Moses and Aaron and angels hovering above them and the last page a flower basket as vignette.

 

Hebrew Description

חידושי הר"ן. שבועות חידושי הריטב"א. בבא מציעא תוספות גורניש על מסכת' ביצה ... יבמות ... גיטין ... בבא קמא ועל איזה שיטה בבא מציעא ועל מסכת' ע"א, שחיבור [!] ... ר' ידידי' גלנטי זצ"ל בהחכם ... משה גלנטי זצ"ל, וחדושי הר"ן על מסכת' שבועות וחדושי הריטב"א על מסכתת בבא מציעא שנדפס ... בשנת שס"ח ... בווינציא ... והביא לבית הדפוס מחדש ... ר' שמואל בן ... ר' יעקב הלוי זצ"ל ברנדיס ...

בשער: בשנת וללוי אמר ת'ו'מ'יך' ואוריך [תס"ו], אולם בשנה זו לא היה דפוס בווילהרמרש דארף ועל כן יש להביא בחשבון גם אות י' של 'תומיך'. עיין: בן-יעקב, עמ' 176, מס' 292. בהוצאת סדילקאב הבאה נזכרת הוצאה זו בשער, והתאריך הנקוב שם: 1716. דף לח, א: עד כאן נדפסו החדושים ... היינו תחילות מסכת ביצה מרבי יצחק אבוהב [השני] וסיומא דמסכת ביצה מהר"ר ידידי' גלנטי ז"ל ... כל הספר נדפס ראשונה בתוך שאלות ותשובות ר' משה גאלאנטי, ויניציאה שס"ח. על שינויים טיפוגראפיים בטפסים שונים, עיין: יאקב שטיינהארדט, אגרת בקרת, בית תלמוד, ג, תרמ"ג, עמ' 304. ידועים טפסים על קלף. החידושים ליבמות הם "תוספות גורניש".
