I'm looking for an edition of Rav Yosef Karo's Maggid Meisharim that has footnotes as well as some sort of scholarly historical background to the sefer. Does anyone know of something like that?

    Seforim stores in Brooklyn. Mizrachi books. Pinter's in Boro Park. And now, Miyodeya. – Mark A. Jan 11 '17 at 11:16
  • Did you try asking them? Did they know anything, similar editions; one with a commentary, but no critical introduction, etc.? | Note that it is debated whether R. Karo actually authored the work in question. – mevaqesh Jan 11 '17 at 15:06

    @MarkA. You should always edit relevant info into the question. – Double AA Jan 11 '17 at 17:18
  • Raphael Judah Werblowsky wrote a wonderful book in English on R. Karo with a focus on the MM; its authorship, credibility and some discourses on different themes in the book. The book is called 'Joseph Karo Lawyer and Mystic'. – Oliver Oct 9 '17 at 3:20
