Likutei Amarim Tanya – Zhovkva, 1798 – First Edition of Igeret HaTeshuva Mahadura Kama

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.
This edition earned two important approbations from prominent rabbis. The first one from R. Moshe Tzvi Hirsh Meisels Rabbi of Zhovkva, and the second from R. Yitzchak HaLevi of Lviv, rabbi of Krakow (R. Yitzchak HaLevi was a foremost opponent of Chassidut, however in this approbation, he highly praises the book and its author).
Signature on title page, in Hebrew; additional signature in Latin characters.
[3], 2-74 leaves. 17.5 cm. Good condition. Stains. Minor worming to title page and several other leaves (slightly affecting text), repaired with paper. Abrasions to title page and to final leaf (presumably from erasing stamps), not affecting text. Tears to leaves 47 and 57, slightly affecting text, repaired. Handwritten inscriptions and markings to body of text in several places. New leather binding.
Stefansky Chassidut, no. 623.
