The book Magid Atidot. True to its name, it reveals to a person who sees a vision at night what will happen to him according to the words of the early Sages. Manuscript. Copied in the city of Zinkov in 1853.
7 pages. 15x9 cm. On page 1 is a title page, on pages 5-7 charts. Pleasant, orderly and legible handwriting.
On the last page is written: "The dream(?)... M.G.D B.D from Rabbi Zusya son of the H.H.K of here and it was explained and I forgot it, Wednesday..." The writer is referring to the Admor Rabbi Meshulam Zusya of Zinkov, the son of Rabbi Yitzchak Meir of Zinkov, the son of the Admor the "Ohev Yisrael" of Apta. The time period of the manuscript is appropriate to the time of the period of Rabbi Meshulam Zusya's reign there, which began in 1855.
Therefore we have before us a manuscript which deals with explanations of dreams in the possession of one of the Chassidim of the Rebbe of Zinkov. 
Bound in a new cover. Aging stains. Very fine condition.
