Chiddushim on the Torah by Rabbi Aharon ben Natan Neta Halprin of Trembovla—first edition. 23 pages unnumbered (25 in the original—the two first pages after the cover are missing). Tears and defects, the pages are all disconnected with wear, generally bad condition. Rare book, especially from a rare printer in Aleksnitz, in which only around 20 Hebrew books were ever printed. Rabbi Aharon ben Natan Neta Halprin (1700-1770) was the son-in-law of the Naggid Ramam of Narol. He lived in Trembovla and because it was an unlearned place he built a Beit Midrash with a large library there using his own money. In his book Machaneh Aron (also printed that year in Aleksnitz), his yichus is noted: “direct line from the HaLevushim [Rabbi Mordechai Yafeh] on his father’s side, and his father’s mother was the daughter of Rabbi HaMeor HaGadol, who was Av Beit Din in Stanov, brother of the famous Av Beit Din of Ostri, great-grandchild of the Teshuvat Rashach. On his mother’s side he is the descendent of the Gaon Chassid Wolf, Av Beit Din of Alik, son-in-law of the Maharshal.
