Physical Description

90 ff., 16 mo., 145:86 mm., wide margins, light age staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary boards, rubbed.

 

Detail Description

Pocket size Book of Psalms. Hebrew text edited to the Minhat Shai. The recital of the whole Book of Psalms is widespread, whether as an act of piety by saintly individuals, or by groups of unlearned people. For this purpose "societies of reciters of psalms" (hevrot tehillim) were and continue to be formed, and in recent times a special society has been formed in Jerusalem whereby two separate groups recite the whole Book of Psalms daily at the Western Wall. The psalms are included in their entirety in all large prayer books.

 

Hebrew Description

מסודר לשבעת ימי השבוע. הוגה מספר מנחת שי מהרב... ידידיה שלמה מנורצי...
