Description Information
   Only edition of the first responsa book printed in America. [2], 39 ff., 301:220 mm., wide margins, usual light age staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary half cloth boards, rubbed.
   Various responsa that reveals the social conditions of New York City circa 1900. The responsa include such problems as if one may construct a sukkah on the fire escape as the total space is below the amount required by halacha. Another deals with allowing non-observant Kohanim to join the priestly services on the Holidays. May one use the ferry on the Sabbath to come to synagogue? How does one form an "eiruv" in a tenement with gentile neighbors?
Paragraph 2    שאלות ותשובות על שו"ע או"ח, יו"ד ואהע"ז... מאתי ...יוסף אליהו פריד בן לא"א יהודה ליב ז"ל שהייתי מלפנים רב אב"ד בעיר שוקיאן במדינות רוסלאנד כמה שנים וכעת רב ומ"ץ בעיר נווארק כאחת עשרה שנה.
