Broadsheet: 465:580 mm., light age staining, creased on folds.

Along the sides are Hilkhot shehitah, Hilkhot bedikot ha ri’ah 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.
