This is the first edition, edited and printed based on manuscripts. This book is the source of many renowned segulot, for remembering Torah study, a protective amulet for a woman giving birth, etc. Just having this book in the house is a reputed segulah for protection from harm and fire as stated on the title page: "An excellent segulah to bear wise and sage sons, for success, blessing and to extinguish fire, so that it shouldn't affect his home, and no evil being should reside in his home, since the holy, awesome book is concealed with his money in his treasury, and in times of trouble it will afford him speedy salvation.
