Specifications: [3], 22, 33, 52, [1], 25, 14, 34 leaves. 41 cm. First edition.

Unique features: The title page bears the signature of Rabbi Moshe Dovid Teitelbaum, Av Beit Din Lapush, son of Rabbi Yisrael Yaakov Yukel Teitelbaum, son of Eliezer Nissan, son of the "Yismach Moshe." His father was the son-in-law of his uncle, the "Yitav Lev", and Rabbi Moshe Dovid was raised by his grandfather who had a special love for him and gave him the manuscripts of the Yismach Moshe so that he could arrange and publish them. He published many of them (Refer to Reshima B'Chachmei Transylvania, p. 117).
After his marriage to the daughter of Rabbi Aryeh Leib of Dukla, son of Dovid of Chrzanow [Kushnev], son of the Divrei Chaim of Sanz, he stayed by the Divrei Chaim in Sanz for a year and learned much Torah and chassidut from him. In 1885, he was chosen Rabbi of Lapush and he served there as rabbi and Rosh Yeshiva for about fifty years. He died at the age of 80, on the 21st of Adar, 1935. (Chachmei Transylvania, and Rabbeinu HaKadosh Mi'Sanz, section two, p. 238).
