Large leaf, with novellae on Tractate Chulin, in Ashkenazi script. Handwritten by the author, with additions and erasures. [Beginning of the 19th century].
The handwriting was identified as belonging to R. Aharon Fuld, a rabbi in Frankfurt am Main [see enclosed photocopy for comparison].
Rabbi Aharon Fuld (1790-1847) was a disciple of the Ba'al Hafla'ah and member of the Frankfurt Beit Din together with Rabbi Zalman Trier and Rabbi Ber Adler. In his book Minchat Kena'ot, the Maharatz Chajes writes: "The great Rabbi, aged Chassid, R. Zalman Trier, Av Beit Din of Frankfurt am Main, with two leading sages of the generation R. Aharon Fuld and the great R. Ber Adler". Corresponded extensively with Rabbi Akiva Eiger and with the Chatam Sofer [who would send with R. Fuld gifts to his mother who resided in Frankfurt], etc. He was among his generation's greatest combatants against the Reform Movement. He wrote: Beit Aharon responsum and glosses and comments on Shem HaGedolim.
Leaf, 33 cm. [2] written pages. High-quality thin paper. Good condition. Folding creases.
