Toldot Adam V'Chavah - Rabbeinu Yerucham. Kapust, 1808. Approbation by Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berdichev

Toldot Adam V'Chavah - Sefer Meisharim, magnum opus of Rabbeinu Yerucham of Provence, one of the Early Authorities. Owner's signatures by Rabbi Yosef Jaffe [1845-1898], rabbi of Salant and Gorzd, on the first leaves.

The work includes: Toldot Adam V'Chavah in two parts - halachic rulings and personal conduct; and Sefer Meisharim - financial law in 32 tracks. Although his books are common, and cited in many important halachic works, their names are not used; they are known inclusively under their author's name, 'Rabbeinu Yerucham.' The back of the title page includes several important approbations including "The rabbi ... the gaon the G-dly Chassid ... Rabbi Levi Yitzchak of Berdichev." This edition also contains an approbation by Rabbi Chaim of Volozhin and others.

Rabbeinu Yerucham ben Meshulam [1290-1350] was a disciple of the Ro"sh and of Rabbi Avraham ben Ismail - a disciple of the Rashb"a. He arrived in Spain after the expulsion from France. He was known to the Beit Yosef's maggid as "Yerucham Tamiri" - and according to the Chid"a, rabbis who composed a commentary to his book (such as Rabbi Shabtai Yonah and Rabbi Aharon Lafafa, author of Bnei Aharon) - passed away or their works were lost. The book became confused due to many transcriptions, and no one dared touch it to repair it.

[1], 188; 82 leaves. Separate title page for Sefer Meisharim. 34 cm. Sefer Meisharim is printed on bluish paper.
Fine condition. Owner's notations at the tops of the first leaves. Aging stains. Detached and restored title page with damage in the left margins. Tiny tears and reinforcements to the first two leaves. Original leather binding, new spine.
