Letter from R. Zvi Hirsch [Edelman] Chen Tov. Two complete pages written on blue paper in his hand and with his signature. {Circa 1850].

R. Zvi Hirsch Edelman was born in Russia in 1803. He was known as an expert in manuscripts and brought some to publication. He referred to himself as ‘Ish Chen Tov,’ (a man of refinement) the Hebrew translation of his family name, which is how he signed this letter. He passed away in 1859.
