Description Information
   245, [3] ff., 122:72 mm., usual light age staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary half leather boards, rubbed.
   Psalms with commentaries in a small edition.

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.

Paragraph 2    מסודר ונחלק לחמשה חלקים... עם תרגום יונתן בן עוזיאל ופירוש רש"י ז"ל ועם שני הפירושים... מצודת דוד ומצודת ציון [מאת ר' יחיאל הלל אלטשולר]...

בסוף: תפילות לאמירת תהלים; "תפלה... בעד החולה".
