Description Information
   [1], 105 ff., 191:156 mm., usual browning and staining. A very good copy bound in modern half leather and cloth boards.
   Selihot for the entire year arranged according to the custom of Frankfurt and the Ashkenaz communities. The title describes what makes 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, as the title page states, a selihot for the entire year, for not only are there selihot for Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, but also for fast days and for even for weekdays. 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.
