Elucidations and comments on Rabbi Chaim Vital's works. In the introduction, the author writes about miracles that occurred to him. Inside the book, he writes about night visions in which secrets of the Torah were revealed to him through a note that descended from the heavens (leaf 38 and more). Rabbi Shalom Mizrachi Adani was born in Yemen and immigrated to the Land of Israel, incurring much hardship along the way. He writes about many miracles which happened on the way. In 1875 he arrived in Jerusalem and became known as a gaon in both hidden and revealed [aspects of Torah], and he was one of the leading directors of the Beit-El yeshivah. He passed away in 1913.

There is a gold-colored sticker on the flyleaf and a handwritten dedication to Rabbi Akiva Yosef [apparently rabbi Akiva Yosef Schlesinger].

[3], 44, 47-106 leaves, 38 cm (!). Beautiful copy with especially wide margins.
