Description
   Pocket calendar for the Hebrew year [5]542 (1781-1782), includes secular holidays, market dates, illustrated astrological signs, and days appropiate for letting blood!

In many German Hebrew presses, Jewish workers would print small works (i.e. calendars, Blessings, etc.) without reporting them to the Christian nobleman that owned the press. The exorbitant rents and taxes demanded of the Jews made economic survival impossible. To put food on the table works like this lot were printed and sold clandestinely. Many times they would forge the name of press and printer to cover the deed, as in this lot the name Sulzbach appears on the title.
