Manuscript, composition on Pirkei Avot. Drush and Torah philosophy commentary. Ashkenazi writing, [18th /19th century].
Complete composition, with a long introduction.
Autographic writing [writing of the author himself, from different times and with different quills]. Among his writings, he mentions the words of the Rambam in Moreh Nevuchim, Chovot HaLevavot, Sefer HaIkarim, Rabbi Yitzchak Abarbanel, Midrash Shmuel and the rest of the commentaries. Unidentified author, but from the content he is unmistakably an outstanding Torah scholar. Apparently, the composition has never been printed.
