60 . Sefer "Tiv Gittin" with signatures of the dynasty of Przedbórz Admors

Tiv Gittin V'Yad Efraim regarding names for divorce. Lemberg, 1839. Signatures of the Przedbórz rabbinical dynasty.

Specifications: The endpaper bears the signature of Admor Avraham Moshe Waltfried of Przedbórz and Rozprza (1840-1918), son of Rabbi Emanuel of Przedbórz, the only son of Rabbi Yeshaya of Przedbórz. He suffered terribly from persecution and libels both by the local gentiles and Jewish opponents. He merited the support of his teacher, Rabbi Chaim of Sanz who wrote when he was young, "The dear rabbi...Avraham Moshe son of...Hakodesh...Emanuel z"l will take over his forefather's position in the rabbinate, and though he is only young in years, the glory of his face is alight with fear and wisdom, so I am sure that he will be a great tree if we glorify and strengthen him." On the same leaf, a little lower down, is the signature of his son, Admor Emanual of Pabianice - Lodz, son-in-law of Rabbi Yehoshua of Djikov, author of Ateret Yeshua.
His brother (from his father's second wife) signed on the title page, and his son-in-law Admor Yechezkel Yechiel Waltfied Av Beit Din of the Ulla region.
For more information, refer to Dibrot Chaim (Jerusalem, 2015).

Condition: Fine. Aging stains. Original binding in disrepair.
