Detail Description

Only edition of this collection of tales and verse from R. Israel Brussia of Russia. The title-page states that it is by a medakak (exacting person) among the writers of Russia, who previously was called Israel Brussia. However, he had initially been called Ben Yavon. There is prefatory material, beginning with explanations of riddles from R. ibn Ezra, followed by the introduction of R. Israel from Russia. The text follows, beginning with essays, then verse, and then concludes with more prose. Several of the pages are still unciut.

עמ’ 45-96, עם שער מיוחד: חלק שלישי זמירות ישראל, שירים ... ומכתבים ... עם ... באורים על איזה פסוקים מתנ"ך. ועל דברי חז"ל ... לפרט ה’ל’א’ א’ך’ ג’ר’ א’נ’כ’י’ פ’ה’ ג’א’ל’י’צ’י’ע’ [תר"ם!]. ונראה שצ"ל: הלוא ... [תרמ"ו]. ‬
