   R. Abraham ben Ze'ev Nahum Bornstein of Sochaczew (1839–1910), Polish rabbi, head of the bet din of Sochaczew. He became famous as a child prodigy. At the age of 14 he married the daughter of R. Menahem Mendel of Kotsk, in whose home he remained for ten years studying Torah and Hasidism. Upon his father-in-law's death, he occupied rabbinical posts in Parczew (1862), Krosniewice (1866), Nasielsk (1876), and Sochaczew (1883–1910). In 1870, following the death of R. Hanokh Henyekh, leader of the Aleksandrow Hasidim, he was appointed his successor, but was harassed by slanderers. R. Abraham founded a yeshivah and was one of the great halakhic authorities of his generation. He originated a special approach to halakhic studies and educated in his yeshivah a generation of disciples who became scholarly hasidic leaders. Interested in the settlement of Erez Israel, he sent his son and son-in-law there in 1898 to acquire land for a religious colony, but negotiations fell through on account of the Turkish land laws. R. Abraham's halakhic works are Eglei Tal (1905), including a study of the laws of the Sabbath, and Avnei Nezer (1912–34), a collection of responsa on the four parts of the Shulhan Arukh.
Paragraph 2    חלק ראשון. כולל ביאור הלכות שבת מי"א מלאכות שבסדר הפת, ונלוה עמם מלאכת גוזז... שחברתי... אברהם בלא"א הרב מו"ה זאב נחום זללה"ה חופ"ק סאכטשאב...

בסוף ההקדמה כותב המחבר שבנו, ר' שמואל, הוא שסידר את הספר "המוקדם מוקדם והמאוחר, וגם מלאתי את ידו להוציא את כל פסקי הלכות מתוך הפלפול ולעשות את פנים הספר ('קיצור הלכה העולה מן הפלפול') בלשונו". בטופס שלפנינו בדף לז,ב נמחק קטע ובמקומו באו בשוליים שתי הוספות בחותמת-גומי. [1] דף בסוף: "לוח הטעות והתיקון". לא יצא יותר.
