Isaac Abrabanel devoted many of his works in examinattion of the Redemption. Here, he attempts to interpret the eschatological chapters of the Book of Daniel. “Though neither place nor printer are indicated on the title, the book can be ascribed without any doubt to the Officiana Ben Israel.” See Fuks, Hebrew Typography in the Northern Netherlands (1984) Vol. I p.131
