This work was originally published under the title Nachlath Tzvi in 1711. The publishers in Zhitomir changed it to Nofeth Tzufim in 1850 and printed it as an anonymous work. Under this name, it became very popular among women as a companion to the Tzenah U’Re’enah. On the author, see B. Naor, Post-Sabbatian Sabbatianism (1999) pp. 79-82.
