MasechetEruvin from the Talmud Bavli of Zhitomir, 1862.

Printed by the Shapira brothers, grandsons of the SlavitaRav. Copy with especially wide margins and thick pages. The cover page is in red and black ink. The Shapira family’s Slavita printing house was closed because of informants, and was re-established in Zhitomir in 1847 by the SlavitaRav’s grandsons, Rabbi HaninaLifa and Rabbi Yehoshua Heschel Shapira, and operated until 1864. In this printing house, their third edition of the Shas was printed. Books printed in Slavita and Zhitomir are known to have a special holiness to them, since the printer and the letters were tovelled in a mikveh before starting work. It is famous that owning a book from a Slavita or Zhitomir printing has a segula for preservation of the home and for success. | Binding is missing. 2 first pages disconnected. 36cm.
