   Only edition of these responsa on Even ha-Ezer by R. Nehemiah ben Abraham ha-Levi Ginzburg of Dubrovna. There are two title pages, the first with a decorative frame stating only that it is responsa, the name of the author and printing information, concluding in Cyrillic. The second title page, entirely in Hebrew, provides additional; information, informing that it is on one of the four parts of the Shulhan Arukh, based on the Talmud, poskim, both rishonim and aharonim. Most importantly, it stresses the author’s relationship to the admor R. Schneur Zalman. It was published by R. Dov Be’er Judah Leib, son of the author by R. Samuel ben Eliezer Aaron Luria. The title page is followed by a detailed description of the responsa, of which there are fifty-two, the introduction of R. Dov Be’er ff [7-12], kellalim and sephekot, and likut from the author. There are more detailed paged addressing the kellalim and sephekot, and then the responsa, in two columns in rabbinic type. Folios 79-82 are glosses by R. Dov Be’er to responsum two dealing with someone who drowned and some time later part of the leg up to the knee was found. Most of the responsa in this volume were submitted to the author by R. Menahem Mendel Schneersohn of Lubavitch. A second volume was published the following year and a third volume in 1887.
