(ChID”A). Sha'ar Yoseph [commentary to Talmudic Tractate Horayoth; final 40 leaves with responsa].

FIRST EDITION. With dedications in Spanish and Portuguese. With autograph signatures of prominent Sephardic Rabbis including R. Ya'akov Ya'avetz (d. 1875, author of Tzur Ya'akov). pp. 16 (mispaginated), ff. 120 (ff. 81-2 reversed as issued), ff. 39 (of 40, lacking f. 39 of index). Slight marginal worming, some staining. Later boards, worn. Folio. Vinograd, Livorno 72; M. Benayahu, Rabbi H.Y.D. Azulai (1959) p. 185, no. 1.

Anton Santini, Livorno: 1756.

The Chida's first published work. Although he was 34 when this work was published it was actually written when the author was just 17 years old. According to Benayahu (p. 186), the Sha'ar Yoseph was scarce even during the author's life-time. Both the lengthy approbation by the Chida's father, as well as the introduction, contain valuable biographical details.
