Hebrew Description

 חלק שלישי. חידושי סוגיות הש"ס ... וכללים ... שיש להוציא מתוך המשא ומתן של השיטות ... כמעשהו בשני החלקים הראשונות ... ועל הכללים האלו שבחלק הזה הציג המחבר ציונים. בחלקים הראשונים. ובשם כלל גדול בפימו המה מכונים ... יוצא עתה פעם ראשונה לאור ... ע"י ... מוה’ יעקב משה אמקרויט ... פרעמישלא ...

מעבר לשער "הקדמה והתנצלות מבן המחבר" ר’ יהודה ליבש יאלוש: "ואחרי ראיתי כי א"א המחבר ... השמיט הפילפולים בספר הזה, ואך בסברות ... ישרות ונאות תמך יתידותיו ... חפשתי בכתבי א"א ... ובחידושיו והעליתי פנינים מתוך כתביו בסילסול ופילפול ... לתת נוספות לראשונים ... ח"ר וח"ב [חלק ראשון וחלק ב] ולספח לזה עוד חלק א’ אשר פיהו יקבנו חלק שלישי בעומק הפלפול ... ולאשר אץ עלי המדפיס ... לא יכולתי לעיין ... עברתי במרוצה ומעט אשר הגהתי". ‬
