Text is in Hebrew. With "Sefer Avodat Ha-Kodesh," also by Ashkenazi from the same publisher on the same date. This is a later edition of work from the 1600s. "To posterity Ashkenazi is known principally as the author of the Shitah Mekubezet, (trans. Gathered Interpretation). This work, as its title indicates, is a collection of glosses on the greater part of the Talmud, after the fashion of the Tosafot; and in it Ashkenazi combined much original and foreign material. The great value of the Shitah lies principally in the fact that Ashkenazi gives therein numerous excerpts from Talmudic commentaries which have not otherwise been preserved." Encyclopedia Judaica. A large paper edition.
