Chessed LeAvraham, profound kabbalistic and Chassidic essays on the Torah portions and various topics, by R. Avraham HaMalach (only son of the Maggid of Mezeritch), with additional selections by R. Avraham of Kalisk and other Chassidic leaders. Czernowitz, [1851]. First edition. With approbations by Rebbe Yisrael of Ruzhin and his sons.
In his approbation, Rebbe Yisrael of Ruzhin describes how during his imprisonment, he lost the manuscript of his grandfather R. Avraham HaMalach. Fortunately, R. Chaim HaLevi of Berditchev succeeded in obtaining a transcript of the manuscript and brought it to print.
A commentary on the Ten Sefirot was printed at the end of the book under the name of the rabbi of Berditchev. It is however actually an essay by R. Shneur Zalman of Liadi, printed in the Tanya.
