Three Magnificent Volumes on Green Paper
 Zohar by the Tanna Rabbi Shimon Bar Yochai.
 Printed by Rabbi Avraham Shmuel Shapiro ben Rabbi Moshe Shapiro, Av Beis Din of Slavita.
The sefer includes the approbation of the Ohev Yisrael, as presented below. It was written on the 9th of Tammuz 1824, a mere 9 days before his passing.
“… [printed] in the printing press of Slavita with a generous and discerning eye…the son of Rabbi Moshe Shapiro, Av Beis Din of Slavita. Hashem has helped him succeed in beautifying his sefarim. How good it is that he now wants to reprint the Zohar, so I warn others, lest anyone impinge on his rights…and he who heeds will be blessed…Avraham Yehoshua Heschel of Apta, here in Mezibuzh.”
