394 . Levushei Srad. Mohilev, 1818, Rare Edition

Novellae on laws of Orach Chaim, and an elucidation on the shape of the Temple. By Rabbi David Shlomo Eibeschutz. Mohilev, 1818.

A special and rare edition. The edition before us was printed according to the first edition which was printed in Mohilev in 1818. However, there are slight changes on the title page, the following page and the last leaf. On pages 31,2 - 37: The Temple according to Yechezkel's vision, with diagrams, a drawing of the Temple and ownership signatures.

It is possible that this is the second edition which was printed later, based on the first edition. It is also possible that the book before us really was printed in Mohilev. Refer to Y.D. Veller, Mahadurot Levushei Srad V'Arvei Nachal, Zachor Avraham Torani Anthology, 1991, pages 96-97. And in C. Leiberman's book, Ohel Rach"el, New York 1984, page 190.

 The author Rabbi David Shlomo Eibeschutz [1755-1814], one of the great Chassidic leaders who was also a significant posek, also known by the name of his work Arvei Nachal on the Torah. 

37 leaves, 23 cm.
