Shulchan Aruch, Amsterdam, from the Year נח"ת [1698]. With Pictures of Angels. Magnificent Complete Set in a Small Format

Shulchan Aruch with Hagahot HaRam"a, Be'er HaGolah and Biur HaMilot, intensively proofread. Amsterdam, Emmanuel Atias Press, 1697-1699. Four volumes. Complete set in magnificent designated leather slipcase.

Each part has two title pages. The first is decorated with cherubs-angels, and as such this sought-after edition is known as Shulchan Aruch with the Pictures of Angels. The second title page, in most of the volumes, bears the year detail "נח"ת" (which recalls the renowned Sefer HaShl"ah  - של"ה נח"ת - that was also printed at the same press the same year and became an extremely in-demand segulah book, due to the fact that the year nacha"t ['שנת נח"ת'] was the year the Ba'al Shem Tov was born, and this is of tremendous significance to Chassidim (refer to the book Keter Shem Tov Shlemot Keha"t edition, 2004, p. 420)).

This is an important edition of the Shulchan Aruch, in a small format. It has many approbations given for this edition from the rabbis of Amsterdam: Rabbi Ya'akov Sasportas, Rabbi Shlomo de Oliviera, Rabbi David ibn Attar, and an approbation from Rabbi Naftali HaKohen Katz, author of Semichat Chachamim, and others.
