Ateret Tiferet, two parts. Novellae and in-depth studies on tractate Brachot and seder Zeraim by Rabbi Levi son of Rabbi David Av Beit Din of Kodni, Lithuania.

Owner's stamps and handwritten signature by the gaon Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Ehrenreich, Av Beit Din of Shamloy, and his son and successor, the gaon Rabbi Yehoshua Ehrenreich.

Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Ehrenreich [1863-1944] was the renowned rabbi of Shamloy and one of the rabbinical leaders of Hungary-Transylvania before the Holocaust. He served as rabbi of Tshabe and then as rabbi of of Shamloy for 40 years until being murdered in the Holocaust in Sivan, 1944. Among other accomplishments, he established the yeshivah for excellent young men and authored many books, including Shu"t Lechem Shlomo in four parts. Some of his letters were lost during the Holocaust. Rabbi Shalom Eliezer of Ratzfurt said of him that in his generation, there was no halachic responder like the rabbi of Shamloy. When the decree of stunning cattle before their slaughter came up in Poland, and rabbinical leaders gathered to consult against this decree, the Chafetz Chaim said that the question should be put before the "mighty genius" of Shamloy (who was not present at said rabbinic assembly), because he can clarify the matter properly. His son Rabbi Yehoshua succeeded his father in the Shamloy rabbinate.
