Sepher Tanya [compilation of Jewish law and custom as applied by the Jews of Italy (Minhag Bnei Roma)]
Second edition. Title within architectural arch. ff. (6) 136. Browned, few paper repairs, fore-edges worn in places, stamps removed from opening two leaves. Modern calf, elaborately blind-tooled. Sm. 4to. Vinograd, Cremona 36.

Vincenzo Conti, Cremona: 1565.

“An assemblage of all the laws and customs proper for every Jewish man, in clear and easy language” (title). Due to the many similarities between this work and Shibbolei HaLeket, it has been suggested that the authors of the two works were either students of the same teacher, or that one of the works was intended to be a concise form of the other. See M.J. Heller, The Sixteenth-Century Hebrew Book, pp. 564-5.
