Group of [3] Books - Beit HaBechirah by HaMeiri. First Editions, 18th-19th Centuries
Before us are first editions of the Beit HaBechirah books, the central works by Rabbi Menachem ben Shlomo of the HaMeiri family. He was one of the great Talmudic commentators of the 13th century. The books by Rabbeinu HaMeiri were hidden for approximately 700 years until the 18th-20th centuries. They were discovered in a single manuscript in the Parama library. Refer to Winner's website about the controversy between the Mishnah Berurah and the Chazon Ish about HaMeiri.
