First complete edition of Likutei Muharan authored by Rabbi Nachman of Bresslov, published in Breslov, 1821. Rabbi Natan risked his life by publishing the sefer in his home. Being that it was done without a censorship license.

Rabbi Nosson describes the process of publishing the sefarim in his home:

In 1819 I began to work on printing in my home, in order to go back and publish his holy sefarim along with several remarkable corrections, and I had great battles in [doing] this and many countless hindrances. And in His wondrous salvation, Hashem wanted me to succeed and I finished the business in three years; that is from the year 1819 until the end of 1821, when the printing of the holy sefarim, the first Likutei Moharan and Tannina, were completed….”

He later recounts how due to people who told out on his operations, government officials came to his home and closed his printing press.

Additional prominent selections include manuscripts from the acharonim, such as the Nesivos Mishpat, Ksav Sofer, Machaneh Chaim, Kol Arhey, Maharsham and Chafetz Chaim, to name a few.
