Detail Description

Attractive and rare comprehensive Spanish edition of the Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur Mahzor. The beautiful title-page is comprised of a top-piece of angels blowing horns about a seated King David with a harp and at the sides are four vignettes, one of David confronting Goliath, another of David bearing the head of Goliath to Saul being greeted by women with tambourines, etc. Orden de Ros Asahan y Kypur begins with selihot, has prayers and pizmonim, thephilah, deroshasah, musaf, and comprehensive services de Kippur. Orden de Ros Asahan y Kypur, entirely in Spanish, was written for conversos returning to Judaism. The printer, David de Castro Tartas, was one of three sons of Portuguese New Christians who had escaped from Bragança, and settled, under the Catholic names Cristóvão Luís and Isabel da Paz in the French town of Tartas. In 1640 they moved to Amsterdam to live freely as Jews, retaining the surname Tartas. This edition is rare, and not well known, the earliest edition of the mahzor Orden de Ros Asahan y Kypur referred to in most references to such works and in library collections is from the eighteenth century.
