This listing is an independent item not part of any collection
, 272,  ff., folio, 376:240 mm., wide margins, light age and damp staining, old hands and stamps on fly and title. A good copy bound in the original calf boards, rubbed and split. Part I only, Part II not seen by bibliographers and may never have been printed as the press closed in 1836.
R. Moses Shapira, son of the zaddik R. Phinehas b. Abraham of Korets, founded the Slavuta printing press, in 1791. Later his two sons, Samuel Abraham and Phinehas, took over the administration of the press. Three editions of the Babylonian Talmud, an edition of the Bible (with commentaries), the Zohar, and many other religious works, especially chasidic literature, were all produced handsomely and with great care by the press. In 1836 the press was closed down when the owners were arrested for the alleged murder of a worker who had supposedly denounced them for printing books without permission from the censor.
