R. Meir Leibish, the Malbi”m

Passover Haggadah with the Midrash Haggadah commentary by R. Meir Leibish, the Malbi”m, and other commentaries. Published by R. Raphael Maskil L’Eitan. Warsaw, Goldman press. 1883. 68 pp., 22 cm.

First edition. There is some controversy surrounding this work. Who was the real author? Was it the Malbi”m himself, or someone else using the Malbim’s school of thought? The conclusion seems to be that it was actually written by R. Raphael Maskil L’Eitan (see the enclosed relevant material).

In very good condition. Printed on paper with acid content.

Yaari 1211, Otzar HaHaggadot 1616.
