Description
Shoresh Yishai [Kabbalistic commentary to the Book of Ruth, with text]. FIRST EDITION. Title within architectural arch. ff. 96. Repaired worming, pages trimmed and washed, title laid down with small portion of arch filled in. Modern marbled boards. Sm. 4to. Vinograd, Const. 221;Yaari, Const. 163; Adams B-1327
Constantinople, Solomon ibn Usque, 1561
Solomon Alkabetz (c. 1505-84) was a liturgical poet and Kabbalist, venerated today as the composer of "Lechah Dodi," a mystical love-song to the Sabbath Queen chanted at sundown on Friday. Alkabetz, together with other members of a mystic fraternity headed by R. Joseph Karo, emigrated from the Balkans to the Land of Israel, settling in Safed in 1535. He was a prolific author, producing commentaries on Song of Songs, Ruth, Esther, the Minor Prophets, Psalms, Job and the Passover Haggadah. R. Moses Cordovero was initially Alkabetz's disciple, although it seems that eventually their relationship was reversed with Alkabetz becoming a student of Cordovero. See EJ, Vol. II, cols. 635-7
