R. Menachem Mendel Hager (1768-1825, Encyclopedia L'Chassidut, Vol. 2, p. 98), founder of the Kosov Viznitz dynasty, son of R. Ya'akov Koppel Chassid who was among the close followers of the Ba'al Shem Tov and leader of prayers in his Beit Midrash. Disciple of Rebbe Elimelech of Lizhensk and of Rebbe Meshulam Feibish Heller, author of Yosher Divrei Emet. After the death of R. Zvi Hirsh of Nadvirna, R. Hager led his Chassidim until his death.

[4] 131 leaves. 24 cm. Good-fair condition. Stains and wear, slight worming. Owner's stamp and signature: "Moshe Leib Blau from Safed". Fabric binding.
Stefansky Chassidut, no. 18. The date 1802 printed on the title page is false [apparently due to censor restrictions], and the real date of printing is 1833. See: Avraham Ya'ari, The Printing House of Rabbanit Judith Rosanes in Lvov, Kiryat Sefer, 17, 1940, p. 107.
