Lot of 2 books of Chazon Ish – Vilna 1935/6. First edition.

Two volumes of the Chazon Ish on Mikvaot/Kashrut and on Ohalot. Printed by Garber, Vilna, 1935/6 respectively. Name of the author in Cyrillic letters only. Original binding. Stamps of ownership of Rav M. Breslever. | The Chazon Ish is the name of the serious of halachic books by the great sage Rabbi Avraham Yeshayahu Karlitz, known as the Chazon Ish himself. This series achieved central status in studies, and the rabbi became very famous as a result of it. The series was edited mainly by his brother-in-law, Rav Shmuel Greenman. In the beginning, the book was published almost unedited. When the Chazon Ish would finish writing a booklet on something specific, he would give it to his brother-in-law to print it. Using this formula they published 22 volumes (all during the author’s lifetime). The volumes before us are from those volumes, and are rare. After the Chazon Ish’s death in 1954, Rav Greenman began editing the series according to the order of the masechtot of Shas and Shulchan Aruch. This series became the classic edition of the book, and was printed in many editions. Today, the normal series contains 9 volumes. | 35cm. Different conditions, generally good.
