Mevaser Tzedek on the Torah, by R. Yissachar Dov Ber MiGeza Tzvi, rabbi of Zlotchov (Zolochiv), disciple of the Maggid of Mezeritch and R. Yechiel Michel of Zlotchov. Dubno, . First edition. The author was a friend and cousin of R. Levi Yitzchak of Berditchev. Their acquaintance began when they were both residing in Lubartów, when R. Yissachar Ber and R. Levi Yitzchak married cousins from the Peretz family in Lubartów (descendants of Spanish exiles). R. Yissachar Ber married the daughter of R. Tzvi Hirsh Peretz, while R. Levi Yitzchak married the daughter of R. Yisrael Peretz of Lubartów. R. Levi Yitzchak and R. Yissachar Ber were both drawn close to Chassidism together, through their relative R. Aryeh Leibush Peretz (author of Beit Peretz). R. Yissachar Ber was later appointed rabbi of Zlotchov and established a yeshiva there. He exchanged halachic correspondence with leading Torah scholars of his times. One of his disciples was R. Chaim of Czernowitz, author of Sidduro shel Shabbat, who describes in his book Eretz HaChaim the Divine Inspiration he witnessed in his teacher. R. Yissachar Ber immigrated to Eretz Israel, settling in Safed in Shevat 1795. He passed away in Av that same year, and was buried in Safed close to the Alshech. His epitaph reads: "Here lies the true Torah scholar, pious and humble". His memory was sanctified amongst Chassidim, and R. Yitzchak Eizik of Komarno testified that he never damaged his G-dly image, not even with the smallest blemish, and he would relate on this topic a wondrous account which took place during R. Yissachar Ber's journey to Eretz Israel (see: Netiv Mitzvotecha, path I, section 13). His books include Mevaser Tzedek on the Torah (reprinted in over six editions), and Bat Ayin – responsa and Talmudic novellae. , 54,  leaves. 19.5 cm. Thick paper. Good-fair condition. Stains.
