   Broadsheet: 465:580 mm., light age staining, creased on folds.
   Large wall poster giving the laws of shehitah in considerable detail. In the center of the front side is a colored diagram of the parts of the body that must be exmained to determine that an animal is not treif. The diagram, which is orange and practically the length of the sheet, starts from the neck and continues to the spleen and liver. Many parts are numbered and several are highlighted in green. Along the sides are Hilkhot shehitah, Hilkhot bedikot ha riah be kizzurah, a description of the numbered items in the diagram, and approbations from R. Joseph Benjamin Simanovicz, R. Jacob ben Baruch Mandelbaum, R. Hoseph Hayyim Sonnefeld, and R. Hayyim ben Abraham ha-Levi Horowitz. Along the right margin are references. The text is in rabbinic type except for headers and initial words, which are in square letters, as are the description of the items in the diagram.
