Only edition of this comprehensive multi-language, Hebrew and Judeo-Arabic commentary on Mishlei by R. Hayyim ha-Kohen. There are two introductions, one of which informs that the text is taken from a manuscript. One commentary, Yad Moshe, is by David Eidan, the son of the publisher, ,  It is followed by the text which is accompanied by several commentaries. The text of Mishlei, set in the center of the page, is in large square vocalized Hebrew, the commentaries are around it in rabbinic type. Those consist of Orach Zaddikim, Orach Yesharim, and Minhat Hadashah. Also in square unvocalized letters is a Judeo-Arabic commentary Kol Erev. In the center, below the text, in square unvocalized letters is a Judeo-Arabic translation. At the end is a separate section of the asaraet ha-dibberot, followed by a short work, Aleh Mezah, errata, and novellae on Orhot Hayyim, Minhah hadashah, and Yad Moshe.   A rare and attractive commentary on Mishlei.
