Description Information
   [2], 132 ff., 198:124 mm., corners rounded, usual light age staining, lacking additional title as usual. A very good copy bound in the original half leather and marbled paper boards, rubbed.
   Selihot for the entire year printed at the renowned Furth press of Itzik Zirndorf. The text of the title page is set within a frame made up of several rows of varied florets. It states, so the eye of the reader does not tire, Selihot arranged according to the custom of the Switzerland. 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, however, not a selihot for the entire year, but only for Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. 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    אין כאן סליחות לכל השנה. בקולופון נאמר: "סליחות לתענית שני וחמישי ושני... עשרה בטבת ותענית אסתר ושבעה עשר בתמוז, נוהגים רוב העולם... לאומרם כסדר שנדפסו בהתפלות ואינם רוצים להטריח עצמם להביא הסליחות לבית הכנסת וא"כ... למותר להציגם פה".

כן נשמטו הפירוש, סדר הפרת נדרים וסדר כפרות והקדמת ר' אליעזר לאזי, שבאו בדפוס פיורדא תקמ"ב.
