Title within typographic border. Woodcut illustrations of domestic scenes on ff. 5, 16, 19, 20. Decorative capitals on most pages.
ff. 47 (i.e. 48). Multiple leaves mounted, ff. 23 mostly incomplete. Closely shaved affecting some headers. Browned, stained. Modern marbled boards. 4to. Vinograd, Frankfurt am Main 464.
Frankfurt am Main: Shlomo Zalman Apterod and Moshe Gamburg 1727
Grace after Meals and a collection of other prayers and blessings to be said on various occasions, with translations into Yiddish. Contains a number of interesting texts that are no longer recited, including the parsha of “Vayishlach Yaakov” to be recited on Saturday evening, at the close of the Sabbath, by those who plan on traveling over the course of the following week. Also includes Sabbath hymns, prayers before retiring, Birth, Marriage and Death services, concluding with an Hagadah for Passover. These Frankfurt “Minhagim-style” illustrations are notably different from the Amsterdam mold. Primitively wrought, they carry a rather striking angularity in their starkness.
