FOUR PARTS BOUND IN THREE VOLUMES. COMPLETE SET of "Gan HaMeshalim veHaHidot" ("The Garden of Parables and Riddles") - a collection of poems by Todros ben Judah Halevi Abulafia (1247-after 1300), a Jewish poet who wrote primarily in Hebrew, but also poems in Arabic. The collection of poems (diwan) was written mostly in Hebrew and included also poems by other authors, as well as 35 poems that represented a poetic debate between Todros Abulafia and the poet Phinehas Halevi. Each volume contains two parts (the third volume contains four parts because it also contains a two-part appendix): first part contains the poems and the second part contains commentary and notes by the editor - David Yellin (1864-1941), Professor of Hebrew Poetry in the Spanish Period at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. [ALL VOLUMES]: 260x195mm. [XVIII+194+142] + [II+152+168/CVI+153-238+116+56+36] pages. Dark blue fake leather Hardcover with gilt spine. Cover corners rubbed. Spine edges bumped. Pages browning.
