Torat HaBayit HaAroch by the Rashb"a, with the Bedek HaBayit and Mishmeret HaBayit commentaries. Berlin, [1762].

There are approximately 13 owner's stamps of Rabbi "Yerucham Yehudah Perlman staying here in Pruzhany" (Hebrew) on the title page and among the book's leaves. On the two leaves preceding the title page, there are very long Torah novellae handwritten by him, apparently never printed. Additional glosses in the body of the book in a different script.

Rabbi Yerucham Yehudah Leib Perlman [1835-1896], one of the greatest scholars of Lithuania, was a well-known genius, both sharp and deep. He was rabbi of Seltz, Pruzhany and Minsk. He was known by the nickname "HaGadol MiMinsk" (a rare title even in the generations before him), which is referred to in his epitaph. Author of Ohr Gadol and Yitaron HaOhr - glosses and novellae on the Mishnah, printed in some editions of the Mishnah.

[2] 190 leaves (leaves 1-2 were bound at the end of the book). 30 cm. Fine condition. Aging stains. Few worming holes. The first leaf of the novellae and the last leaf are detached. Worn binding.
