This listing is an independent item not part of any collection
43; 111 ff., 337:222 mm., light age staining, stamps on title, blue paper, title in red ink. A good copy bound in contemporary full leather boards, later spine, rubbed.
Printed by Israel Jaffe, a disciple of R. Menahem Mendel of Vitebsk and R. Shneur Zalman of Lyady. Jaffe is known for his printing the first editions of many Hasidic works of the Besht and the Ba'al ha-Tanya. Not all tractates were printed, as the Slavuta edition appeared at the same time and offered a nicer copy with more commentaries, eventually resulting in the bankruptcy of the Jaffe printing house.
