Commentary and novellae on the legends of our Sages on tractate Brachot up to page 6, from the darshan and rebuker Rabbi Berachia Beirach son of Rabbi Elyakim Getzel, Av Beit Din of Klimontów.

Specifications: [2], 38 leaves. 30 cm. Printed with no title page. Rabbis' approbations on the first and second leaves. First edition. 

Unique Features: Extremely rare. 

Background: The author was the grandson of Rabbi Berachia Beirach of Krakow, author of Zera Beirach, and therefore called his book Zera Beirach 'Shlishi'. This part is only a small amount of the many works he wrote, but which were stolen from him, "And from what was printed we can see his great power and how he is complete and an overflowing spring, the source of wisdom" (Shem Gadol Ma'arechet Sifrei Ma'arechet 2:4).

Condition: Very fine. Simple binding.
