   Tractate Derekh Erez Zuta with the commentary of R. Isaac Elijah Landau and notes of the Gra. R. Elijah ben Solomon Zalman of Vilna (Vilna Gaon, Gra) is a dominant figure in Jewish intellectual thought, his importance and prestige undiminished, as great today, if not greater, than in his own time. The Vilna Gaon’s extraordinary intelligence, expressed by his expertise in Torah at the age of three, outdistancing his tutors while a young child, his incredible proficiency over the entire expanse of the written and Oral Torah by nine, by which time he was already studying Kabbalah, accompanied by complete piety, are attested to by numerous reputable sources. More than seventy works, encompassing Bible, halakhah, Talmud, and Kabbalah, are attributed to the Vilna Gaon.
Paragraph 2    עם באור דרך חיים, לבאר פשטי הדברים, וארחות חיים, לבאר ענינים הזרים במקראי קדש ומדרשי חכמים... עם הגהות... רבינו אליהו ז"ל מווילנא ... מאת צעיר... מילידי... ווילנא... יצחק אליהו לנדא ... בן... ר' שמואל ז"ל לנדא... ובשבתו בדובנא הכינו וחקרו...

בהקדמה: "סדרתי המסכת כפי שהיא מוגהת מאת... הגר"א", כלומר, הפנים תוקן על-פי ההגהות, וההגהות עצמן אינן מובלטות.
