Bat Ayin on the Torah, with halachic responsa, by Rebbe Avraham Dov of Ovruch and Safed. Zhitomir: R. Chanina Lipa, R. Aryeh Leib and R. Yehoshua Heshel Shapira, grandsons of the rabbi of Slavita, 1850.
Second edition, not identical to the first edition. This book was first printed in Jerusalem in 1847, based on the manuscript of R. Yisrael of Fălticeni, a disciple of Rebbe Avraham Dov of Ovruch. In 1850, the book was reprinted in Zhitomir based on the manuscript of a different disciple (R. Meshulam Zussman of Zhitomir), who presumably was not aware of the edition printed in Jerusalem. This edition contains many additions and variations in comparison to the Jerusalem edition.
