Rabbi Chaim Nasan Shohet, a distinguished Talmudic scholar, was the rabbi at Congregation Shaarey Tphiloh in Portland until 1916.

The Secher Chaim is a "responsa" in which a rabbi puts forward religious questions, then writes answers based on a wide range of sources of Jewish texts.

The cover is in Yiddish. The English portion reads: "Secher Chaim, By Rabbi H.N. Shohet, Portland, Maine, Published by the Author, Second Edition, 1913."
