Commentary of the Gaon Rabbi Eliyahu of Vilna on the Mishnayot Seder Zeraim, with proclamation from the rabbis of Vilna.

Specifications: [2], 9, 59 [should say: 58] leaves. 35.5 cm. Otzar Sifrei HaGRA 177. First edition.

Unique features: On the back of the title page: "Proclamation from the beit din of Vilna against people who did not do all that was necessary but still held that they could decide halachah, in the name of the Rabbi of the entire diaspora, the true and famous gaon...Eliyahu z"l."
This was one of the first books of the Vilna Gaon that was printed (he passed away in 1798). This book was printed by his sons, and his son-in-law, Rabbi Moshe Yehuda Leib of Pinsk was in charge of editing and proofreading.
