Description Information
   64, 15, [1] ff., 193:120 mm., wide margins, age and damp staining, old hands. A good copy loose in contemporary boards.
   Abbreviated edition of R. Simeon Frankfurt's Sefer ha-Hayyim. Kizzur Sefer ha-Hayyim is comprised of a series of prayers, many lengthy and confessional, to be recited on behalf of an ill person, deceased, or when visiting a cemetery, primarily the latter instances. The title page describes it as being printed with large letters, with good ink on fine paper with annotations. Printed with the prayers in a smaller rabbinic font are further pertinent halakhic and instructional matter. The text is followed by a section entitled Sefer ha-Hayyim in Ashkenaz. This section, in Yiddish, is set in Vaybertaytsh. The volume concludes with an index of the prayers.
