Rabbi Yitzchak Schwadron wrote glosses in the margins of these volumes, apparently a basis for his great work. Some of these glosses were inserted word-for-word in his printed work. Includes a number of glosses on the Rif. Signatures and stamps of Rabbi Yitzchak HaKohen Schwadron and the signatures of his son, Rabbi Shlomo Mordechai Schwadron, the Jerusalem Maggid.

Rabbi Yitzchak Schwardron was born in 1856 to Rabbi Shalom Mordechai Schwadron, the Maharsham of Berzan. He was an affluent businessman and served as rabbi of Hatzimersh, without pay. In 1896, he was robbed and in 1898 he was widowed and left with 9 children. He immigrated to Eretz Yisrael in 1903 and settled in Jerusalem where he served on the Badatz HaChassidim. He passed away in 1920.

In 1910, he started to publish his giant work on the Tosefta. It included two sections: Minchat Yitzchak and Shirei Minchah. Before his death, he printed the work on Seder Zeraim and Tractate Shabbat. His son Rabbi Shalom Mordechai Schwadron published his works on Moed, Nashim and Nezikin years later from his father's manuscripts. However, the works on Kadshim and Teharot were never printed, because Rabbi Yitzchak passed away in middle of Seder Kadshim. Here are his glosses on these sedarim [volume 5].

New bindings. Aging stains. Minimal reinforcements and loose leaves. Fine condition.
