Prayers and supplications per the Ar"i's kabbalah, by Rabbi Natan Nota Hanover. Printed by Yechiel Michel Maya; edition unknown in the Bibliography of the Hebrew Book.

Rabbi Natan Nota Hanover was born to his father, Rabbi Moshe, in the town of Ostroh. There are theories that he studied Torah under the Maharsh"a. During the decrees of Ta"ch V'Tat (1648/9) the rabbi and his family fled Ukraine (the escape was described in the book Yavan Metzulah) and arrived in Italy, where he began to study kabbalah. Following this, he composed the book Shaarei Tziyon. He testified about himself that he was a disciple of Rabbi Chaim HaCohen of Aleppo, who was Rabbi Chaim Vital's primary disciple.

105 leaves, 12.5 cm. Lacking leaf 6. Apparently five leaves in the book are from a different version.

Moderate-fine condition, some of the pages' titles are cropped, aging stains and tears without lack.
