There is a little mystery to this book. I do not know anything about Rabbi Menachem Nachum other than what is written in this book and also that he has a brief mention in the Plotsk Yizkor book. he was a Dayan of Plotzk and Chief Rabbi in Friedeberg in Germany.
The book was published by his grandson, Israel Joseph Price, and I do not know much about him either. I suspect that he is identical with Israel Joseph Price, the father of Solomon Price, a Founder, President and Warden of the Walthamstow and Leyton Synagogue, until his death in 1938, but I have no documentation of that. If so, then his grand-daughter married Wing Commander Joseph Kemper, OBE, a Royal Flying Corp and Royal Air Force pioneer who served in both World Wars, but that is another story.
My copy was presented by Israel Joseph Price to a Joseph Rosenbloom.
It also has stamps of a Rabbi Vinik from Brownsville, Brooklyn, New York.
There are two haskamas (approbations), from the Rabbi’s of Kutno and Gombein, towns in Poland.
We also hear from Israel Joseph Price, who mentions his cousins:
