Description Information
   90; 119-156 ff., 132:84 mm., crisp margins, light age staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary leather, expertly restored with modern slipcase.
   Psalms in a pocked size for easy portability and recital. 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 לשבעת ימי השבוע. הוגה מספר מנחת שי מהרב... ידידיה שלמה מנורצי זצ"ל...

לפי הוצאת ווין 1817, בהשמטת שמוש תהלים, ערוב תבשילין ותשליך.
