[Miniature - Bible - Unrecorded]
This listing is an independent item not part of any collection
92 ff: 183,  pp., 16°, 107:66 mm., nice margins, light age and damp staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary cloth boards, rubbed. Unrecorded in the bibliography.
Book of Psalms. Hebrew text and English translation. 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.
