(price-clipped) [nice copy, mild soiling to top edge, bottom corners bumped, private library stamp on ffep; jacket moderately soiled, worn at edges, minor paper loss here and there (notably at top of spine), discoloration to spine]. "Jonah ben Abraham of Gerona was a famous Spanish Rabbi of the Middle Ages. Thanks to his ethical works, which were reprinted again and again, his name has for centuries been a household word in pious Jewish circles. This book is an attempt, with the help of manuscripts in the British Museum and elsewhere, to deal comprehensively with his life and moralistic works. Of interest even to the layman are the chapters than describe the basic principles of his ethics and paint a picture of the religious, communal, cultural, social and political conditions of the Jews of Rabbi Jonah's day."
