Likutei Amarim Tanya, by Rebbe Shneur Zalman of Liadi. Zhovkva, [1798].
This edition is the second printing of the Tanya in the author's lifetime, and was presumably printed without his knowledge. This is the first edition containing chapters of Igeret HaTeshuva – Mahadura Kama (printed at the end of the book).
This is the first time the book was titled Tanya, a title used ever since. In the first edition, the book was named only Likutei Amarim.
