First edition of the Mussar discourses of R. Yeruchum Halevy Levovitz. Printed at the end of 1939, immediately prior to the Holocaust.
R. Yeruchum Levovitz (1873-1936), was considered the most eminent of the leaders of the Mussar movement in the period between the two world wars. As Mashgiach in the Mir Yeshiva, his Mussar discourses were attended by hundreds and his every thought was treated with great reverence. Following his passing in 1936, his students began the task of preparing his lectures for publication, but it was not until late 1939 that they were actually printed.
Entire sefer, with the exception of the title page and introduction, printed in stencil form.
With the signature of R. Aaron Lichtenstein, Rosh Yeshiva of Kaminetz in Yerusholayim.
Krines press. 4, 450, 1 pages. 23.7 cm. Fine condition. Brown paper. Some pages loose. Antique binding.
Opening bid $250
