Sefer Charedim by the holy rabbi, Eliezer Azkiri ztz"l ... by order and publication of the partners ... Asher Zelig Berach z"l ... and his son ... Pinchas ... and Chanoch Henoch. Radziwilow, [1818].

This edition features approbations from Rabbi Ephraim Zalman Margoliot and Rabbi Yehudah Aryeh Leib Teumim which relate specifically to this edition. Owner notations and signatures from around the time of printing.

During the same year and at the same place, another edition was printed without location of print or the approbations. This copy does contain the name and location of the press, and the approbations, and its pagination matches the listing in Ginzei Yisrael 950 and the Bibliography of the Hebrew Book #108715.

The Hebrew press in Radziwilow [Radzivilov, Volhynia] operated for a very short period of time and less than ten books were printed there; they are all rare.

[6], 5-66, [2], 67-68, [1], 69-101 [should be: 102], [1] leaf. 16.5 cm. Ginzei Yisrael 950. Light blue paper.

Moderate-fine condition. Aging stains. A number of page titles were cropped. Worn, detached binding.
