Specifications: 32, paper leaf. 17 cm.

Unique Features: The Admor Rabbi Avraham Brandwein of Stretin's personal copy. The Admor's son is Rabbi Uri Brandwein of Azipoli. He served as Admor in Piatra-Niamt, Rumania, and was very active in helping refugees who arrived from Poland during the period of the Holocaust. After the Holocaust, he immigrated to Israel and settled in Haifa, where he established his study hall. He passed away in 1973.

On the first page there is an interesting signature of the rabbi's with the following poem about writing his name in the book so that no one absconds with it:

"אחרי ראית אנשי מזימה
חושבים על רעיהם רע ומרמה.
ואם שרואים ספר בלא חתימה.
נוטלים אותם תחת הגלימה.
ואומרים איין בידינו מאומה.
לכן הננו חותם את שמי.
מגן הוא לכל הבוטחים בו. הק' אברהם ברנדווין מסטאניסלאב יע"א"

Condition: Fine. Partially detached title page. Original binding, slightly detached.
