The exoteric passages of the Zohar with short explanatory notes, along with kabbalistic explanatons by R. Shimshon of Ostrapolya of the Ten Plagues and the 42 encampments of the Israelites from the Exodus to Arvoth Moab. Also contains Megillath Saragossa and The Letter from the Lost Tribes resident across the Sambatyon. Halevy notes three variants of this work: The present copy is yet another variant. It is similar in its pagination to the Ben Menachem copy, plus it has the announcement on the verso of the title as does the (former) Jews’ College copy. The Megillath Saragossa was originally published by Guzinni separately in 1872. Evidently it immediately went out of print, Halevy found only one extant copy, prompting its republication
