Description

Physical Description:

[2], 40 ff. plus 1 unrecorded volvelle, quarto, 192:158 mm., usual light age staining, wide margins, rounded edges, old hands of previous owners on f.2.. A good copy bound in contemporary boards, rubbed and new spine.

 

Detailed Description:   

Ebronot has charts and calculations related to the phases and intercalation of the calendar. Included are Iggul de-R. Nahshon, Lu'ah ha-Zahav attributed to Rav Saadiah Gaon, Tekufot of Rabbi Isaac ben R. Samuel, and verses of R. Abraham ibn Ezra, and Sifer Re'amim. An example from the last work, which relates the
effects of thunder by month, is, "Av, if it thunders a great man will die; if an earthquake there will be famine in several lands."

Although the first edition (Riva 1560) book does not name the author, it is most often attributed to R. Eliezer ben Jacob Beilen (Belin, Bellin) Ashkenazi. This attribution seems to be in error, however, for Beilin apparently lived in the late 16th-early 17th centuries and emended Ebronot, his enhanced edition being first printed in Lublin, in 1614. It has also been suggested that the printer, R. Jacob Marcaria, may be the author, for, as Bloch reports, "the Ibronot ... and
some fine explanatory notes on the text of the Passover Haggadah are credited to his pen." However, given the existence of an edition printed more than thirty years earlier (not examined and assumed to be alike), Marcaria, too, would seem unlikely as the author.

R. Eliezer b. Jacob Bellin Ashkenazi, German scholar of the seventeenth century. He prepared a calendar ("'Ibronot," Lublin, 1615) based upon the work of R. Jacob Marcaria (Riva di Trento, 1561), and improved by the addition of a circular table, which facilitated the determination of holidays and other important dates. It was reprinted at Lublin (1640) and Frankfort-on-the-Oder (1691).

 

Hebrew Description:

... מועתק מהחיבור של הח"ר אליעזר בלין אשכנזי שנדפס כבר [בלובלין שע"ה]. ועתה נתחדש ... עם קונטריס (נותן ישועה) בסופו (לג- מ) ע"י ... ר' מאיר בהר"ר נתן יהושע כסת"ם [כותב ספרים תפילין ומזוזות] ז"ל מגולה המלבורג. דפוס באנע פענטורא דע לא נאיי, ע"י המדפיס ישראל בן משה, ב'ע'ת'ה' אחישנה' לפ"ק

לוח החגאות" ו"ספר רעמים" נשמטו. בקונטריס נותן ישועה נכלל "ענין החגאות".
