Likkutei Halachot on tractates: Zvachim, Menachot, Tammid, Temurah, Kritut and Meilah. Separate title page for tractates Tammid onward. Authored by the rabbi of all Jewry, the great Kohen, Rabbi Yisrael Meir HaKohen of Radin. There is a pencil inscription of the word "מוגה" ("proofread") handwritten by the author on the page preceding the title page.

The "Chafetz Chaim" authored this work with the desire to strengthen study of seder Kadshim and the rest of the halachot that will be observed after the arrival of Mashiach.

The "Chafetz Chaim," out of concern for theft or fraud, would meticulously check all books to be sold for printing errors. Each book that was checked would have "מוגה" handwritten by him on the title page. This notation was usually in pencil, for the same reason as above. The "Chafetz Chaim" even preferred to write it himself out of concern that others might write "מוגה" without sufficient checking. Many of these notations have disappeared over the years following re-binding or erasures.

[3], 74, 2-53; [1], 2-16, 2-18, 2-16 leaves.

Fine condition. Brittle paper.
