Da'at U'Mezimah on Shas and Shulchan Aruch by the gaon Rabbi Meshulem Zalman Lorberbaum, Av Beit Din of Zolkiew and grandson of Rabbi Ya'akov Lorberbaum of Lissa, author of Netivot Mishpat and Chavat Da'at. Only edition.

The Lorberbaum family was one of the privileged families in which the Torah was handed down from one to another without interruption. Starting from the "Chacham Tzvi," his son Rabbi Nattan, his son Rabbi Ya'akov Moshe Lorberbaum, father of the author of the Netivot(for whom the name Ya'akov was added due to an illness, like his son's name, the author of Netivot), the author of Netivot HaMishpat's son - Rabbi Mordechai Yehudah [Leib] Lorberbaum, who ascended to the Land of Israel and settled in Safed. His son Rabbi Meshulem Zalman authored this book, Da'at U'Mezimah, and his son is Rabbi Avraham, Av Beit Din of Zolkiew, whose stamps are displayed on the leaves of the book before us.

Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Binyamin Shpitzer [1872-1934] was born during the week of shivah for the Ktav Sofer ztz"l, and he was named after him. He was a disciple of the author of Shevet Sofer. He served as rabbi of Mishkoltz, Hungary, and then as rabbi of Hamburg, Germany, for 23 years. He kept in close contact with the rabbinic leaders in Lithuania, the Chafetz Chaim and Rabbi Chaim Ozer Grodzinsky at their head.
