Description Information
   [1], 16, 2-96 ff., 221:180 mm., wide margins, usual light age staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary boards.
   Selihot for the entire year arranged according to the custom of the Frankfort and other Ashkenaz communities. The title states that this edition is printed on white paper with black ink and new letters which has not been previously printed. It then goes on to describe those additions that make this Selihot unique, namely, the inclusion of pizmonim so that it will not be necessary to search after them as everything is in its place, not delaying or distracting the user from his prayers. Also, when the attractiveness of the work is seen one will open their mouth with song and praise. This is, as the title page states, a selihot for the entire year, for not only are there selihot for Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, but also for fast days. The selihot are set in square vocalized type.

Selihot are a special order of service consisting of non-statutory additional prayers which are recited on all fast days, on occasions of special intercession and during the Penitential season which begins before Rosh Ha-Shanah and concludes with the Day of Atonement. The word selihah means forgiveness, and in the singular is used to indicate a piyyut whose subject is a plea for forgiveness for sins.

Paragraph 2    כמנהג ק"ק פראנקפורט ושאר קהילות אשכנזים... גם הצגנו... הסמנים מסליחות... בשובבי"ם ת"ת...

טז דף, עם שער מיוחד: "סליחות עם סדר תפילת שחרית וקריאת הפרשיות השייכים לימי הסליחות (כמו שנדפסו באמשטרדם [תק"ס])". "הדרת קודש" לא נדפס. על-פי קארלסרוא תקנ"ב.
