Sefer Likutei Halachot, a collection and compilation of halachic conclusions of Talmudic treatises. Volume 2. Parts 4-8. Pesachim, Chagiga, Rabbi Chanina Sgan HaCohanim, Bava Kama, Rosh Hashana, Yoma, Succah, Ta'anit, Sanhedrin, Shvu'ot, Makot, Horayot, Chulin. By Rabbi Yisrael Meir HaCohen author of Chafetz Chaim. Warsaw-Piotrków, [1922]. Some of the books in this volume are first editions and some are stereotypes of previous editions. All were bound together in the original binding with embossing: "Likutei Halachot".
Ownership signatures: "Efraim Shmuel Lerner". The book has dozens of glosses - corrections of mistakes and printing erasures in a handwriting which seems to us as the handwriting of the author, Rabbi Yisrael Meir HaCohen, author of Chafetz Chaim.
On the flyleaf is an index arranged according to tractates written in pencil and black ink. The pencil inscriptions were reinforced by another writer with blue ink of a fountain pen. The letters in black ink and in pencil are the Chafetz Chaim's own handwriting and the blue ink reinforcement was apparently written by Rabbi Lerner.
The book Likutei Halachot was printed by the Chafetz Chaim in his later years, during 1910-1922. In the following editions the letters were not rearranged but printed with the stereotype method. Additions or corrections cannot be added in this method of printing. This is different from the Chafetz Chaim and the Mishna Berura books which were printed in several subsequent editions with rearrangements to include corrections.
This is the first copy we know printed with these corrections. Almost all the mistakes corrected in this manuscript remained in all the following editions of Likutei Halachot as they were printed like the initial edition, including the new edition printed in Jerusalem in 2005. (Besides two mistakes).
