Editor). Margalioth Tovah [super-commentaries to Abraham ibn Ezra on the Pentateuch: Ohel Yoseph, Mekor Chaim and Megilath Setarim]

FIRST EDITION. With astronomical plate at end (usually lacking).
A wide-margined copy. ff. (4), 156, (1). Ex-library, lightly browned. Original calf over thick wooden boards, two hinges, lacking clasps, rubbed, expertly rebacked. Tall folio. Vinograd, Amsterdam 1192.

Isaac de Corova, Amsterdam: 1722.

A FINE WIDE-MARGINED COPY. The editor states he gave this work the title Margalioth Tovah based upon the Midrash suggesting that an exquisite pearl hung from the neck of the Biblical Abraham. He compares Abraham ibn Ezra ‘in spirit’ to the Abraham of the Bible.
