See lot 219 for Approbation dated 1932 by Rabbi Baruch Marcus Av-Beit-Din Haifa, to Rabbi Yehudah Heilbrun, on publishing the book.

Rabbi Yehuda Heilbronn (c. 1870-1958) was an unknown genius who lived in Haifa, since immigrating through Cyprus in 1931. Not much is known about him. In his later years, he spent much time in the Yachel Yisroel Yeshiva of Seret Vishnitz in Haifa and many have memories of him spending long hours over Torah study while standing up, though he was already an old man. As far as we known, he is buried in Shomrei Shabbos Zichron Meir cemetery in Bnei Brak.

Ten volumes, thousands of leaves. 32 cm. Generally in good condition. Moth marks.
