First edition of Rabbi Yosef Babad's monumental book. "Comprehensive explanation on Sefer HaChinuch, of tremendously in-depth study and excellent proficiency, wonder of wonders…” The book was published anonymously, as is written on title page: "Written by one of geniuses of our days the holy and pure, and due to his humbleness emitted his name". Only in the second edition which was published in Lemberg in 1889, approximately 15 years after the author's death, did the publisher reveal the name of the author.
The book eventually became one of the basic books of erudite and in-depth study. Throughout the years thousands of copies in dozens of editions were printed and dozens of other books discuss it.
Three parts in one volume. The first part is missing the title page; the two following parts have title pages.
117 pp; 148 pp; 105 pp.
Condition: Very Good. Some of the pages with slight dampness damage. Single pages are loose and slightly torn.
