Special lengthy handwritten dedication by the author, in which he glorifies the recipient and his father. With the recipient's stamps.

The author, Rabbi Chaim Yehudah Deitch was born in 1876 in the village of Kalitz, in which only two Jews resided. He was the primary disciple of Rabbi Moshe Greenwald, author of Arugat HaBosem, in Klinordin, and then he moved together with him to Chust. He was known for both his genius and devotion. He served as rabbi and adjudicator in Makow for 35 years. He followed the Admor Rabbi Yechezkel of Shinowa and Rabbi Y. D. of Belz. He authored several additional books, including the Kol Yehudah Passover Haggadah. He passed away in 1937. His sons served as important rabbis in the Land of Israel. The book's recipient, Rabbi Moshe Mordechai Pollock, was rabbi of Vadkart, successor to his father, Rabbi Yeshayah Pollack, disciple of the author of Shevet Sofer.

Very fine condition.
