Ramban’s commentary on the Torah. Copy of the Mara d’Ara d’Yisrael, Rabbi Shmuel Salant—Zolkva, 1805.

Printed by Rav Avraham Yehuda Leib Meir Haper. Cover page has two stamps of ownership by the Gaon Rabbi Shmuel Salant (1816-1909), the esteemed rabbi of Jerusalem for around seventy years, and leader of the Ashkenazi communities of Israel. He became famous as a genius in his youth, and was only 13 when his rabbi, Rabbi Avlei Paswaller (the Ra’avad of Vilna), sent him a letter with a difficult question regarding taking care of a get, showing that his rabbi already trusted his instructions as that of a Rav. In his youth he studied in a hevruta with Rabbi Yisrael of Salant (father of the Mussar movement). In 1841 he was invited to Israel to serve in the Jerusalem Rabbinate and lead the Prushim community, and he established educational and chessed institutions there, as well as a beit din and established the Ashkenazi community. | Pages detached, without binding, moth damage. 197 pages. 23cm.
