Specifications: [3], 40: 46 leaves. 35 cm. First edition. Stefansky, Chassidut 93.

Unique features: Nice copy. Quality paper and wide margins. The book opens with approbations from the Chatam Sofer and more. Includes a preface by his son, Rabbi Yehoshua Heschel Teomim Frenkel and a preface by the editor, who embedded comments and novellae by the author's son-in-law, Rabbi Chaim of Sanz - the "Divrei Chaim". In this first edition, the Divrei Chaim's name is not listed, but, after his identity became publicized, other editions did include his name.
These are the first Torah thoughts of the Divrei Chaim to be printed.

Background: Rabbi Yehoshua Heschel, the son of the Baruch Taam who is mentioned here, was a scholar and philanthropist. He was a dedicated disciple of the Chozeh of Lublin and his go-between in his dealings with Rabbi Ezriel Horowitz, the Rabbi of Lublin. He made the shidduch between his sister and Rabbi Chaim of Sanz (Refer to Ohel Baruch).

Condition: Very fine, other than a tear, without loss, to leaf [2].
