Pirkei Rabbi Eliezer – Venice, 1608 / Lechem Dimah – Venice, 1600 – Signatures of Rabbi Moshe Abuzaglo (Father of the Mikdash Melech)

Two books printed in the 17th century, bound together:

• Pirkei Rabbi Eliezer. [Venice: Zuan (Giovanni) Zanetti, 1608].
Colophon on last leaf, dated 1608.
• Lechem Dimah, commentary on the Book of Eichah, including original text, by R. Shmuel de Uzeda. [Venice: Daniel Zanetti, 1600]. First edition.
At end of book, index of verses and note on typographical errors by proofreader R. Yitzchak Gershon.
In several places in both books, signatures and ownership inscriptions of R. Moshe son of R. Shalom Abuzaglo (in square and semi-cursive script and with calligraphic decorations): "Moshe son of Shalom Abuzaglo"; "Purchased by me… Moshe son of Shalom Abuzaglo, for twenty mazuna of Mawlay Sulayman, here in Rabat, 1698". This is presumably the kabbalist R. Moshe Buzaglo, father and primary teacher of the kabbalist R. Shalom Buzaglo, author of Mikdash Melech, named in the introduction to that work [R. Shalom Buzaglo was born in 1700 in Salé, next to Rabat].
On title page and at beginning of the Book of Eichah, signatures of "Yaakov Buzaglo".
Two glosses [trimmed] in Western script.

Pirkei Rabbi Eliezer: 50 leaves. Leaf 45 bound backwards. Lechem Dimah: 2-119, [1] leaves. Missing title page. 17.5 cm. Condition of leaves varies; first book and beginning of second book in fair condition, most of second book in good-fair condition. Many stains, including dampstains, traces of former dampness and dark stains. Wear. Tears, including marginal open tears to several leaves, affecting text, partially repaired with paper. Paper repairs on verso of title page of first book. Close trimming bordering text, affecting headers of leaves in several places. New binding.
