Sha'agat Aryeh. Frankfurt am Oder. 1756. First Edition

Responsa by Rabbi Aryeh Leib b"r Asher MiMetz [Ginzburg] that he printed in his lifetime. He is known by the name of this book, as the author of Sha'agat Aryeh.

As in the original copies, the leaves at the end that were added after the printing are not included. The author first printed the book with 103 simanim, with errata on the last leaf.

And such a copy was before Rabbi Akiva Eiger who mentioned siman 103 and wrote 'in the last teshuva'. In the copy before us, as in the original copies, there are no pages at the end that were added after printing.

This is the copy that Rabbi Akiva Eiger had in his possession when he mentioned siman 103 and wrote "In the last responsum." As the author wrote in his preface, due to the expense of printing, he did not print all his works. He later printed another five simanim and added them to this book. Refer to the introduction to the book Sha'agat Aryeh published by Machon Sha'ar HaMishpat, p. 20, note 35.

Owner's signature on the title page.
