Detail Description

Responsa from R. Saul ben Moses of Lomza. The title page informs that R. Saul ben Moses was av bet din in Lomza in Litta and that his maternal uncle was R. Jacob ben Isaac Kahana Shapira (Ohel Ya’akov). The title-page, following a practice popular in the eighteenth century, states in a small font that it was printed in Zolkiew with letters, in a significantly larger font, Amsterdam, this due to the prestige of Amsterdam imprints at the time. Below it is a pressmark, a mirror image monogram, used previously in Frankfurt on the Oder, inverted here. Within the volume there are also several interesting tail-pieces.  Givat Shaul has six approbations from prominent rabbis, followed by R. Saul ben Moses’ introduction, indexes organized according to the order of the Tur and then the responsa. There are one hundred twelve responsa in Givat Shaul covering all four parts of the Shulhan Arukh. The responsa are detailed, thorough, and authoritative, so that Givat Shaul is an important halakhic work of responsa.
