Magnificent copy! Masas Binyamin. Metz 1776, Copy of R' Shmuel Yitzchak Hillman.
Masas Binyamin. Metz 1776.
Halachic responsa authored by R. Binyamin Aaron Solnick.
R' Binyamin Aaron Solnick (died 1620) was a disciple of the Re’Mah and the Ma’HarShaL. He was one of the greatest poskim of his era and corresponded extensively with the other great rabbinical leaders of his period including the Se’Mah, Levush and Ma’HaRaM Lublin.
With approbation of R. Aryeh Leib of Metz (Shaagas Aryeh).
Printed on the title page “By the grace of our beloved King Louis XVI of France”. This is crossed out, presumably in the spirit of the French Revolution.
