Description Information
   5, 134 [i.e. 234], [3] ff., 132:78 mm., wide margins, usual light age and damp staining. A very good copy bound in the original half leather and marbled paper boards, rubbed.
Paragraph 1    A similiar Psalms by פנחס זאב וואלף בהרר בנימן זלה"ה מפה ק"ק הענא is described in CD-EPI 0182394; in place of the initial 5 Hebrew ff. it has [26] Latin ff. This version remains unrecorded and unknown in the bibliography.
   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.
Paragraph 2    עם פירוש הקצר, אשר לקחתי מבית האוצר המה המפורשים[!] הראשנים[!] (רש"י ואבן עזרא רד"ק [ועוד])... והבאתי אותו לבית הדפוס אשר הכינותי, להראות מעשי ידי ופעולתי אשר כזאת וכזאת עשיתי. על התורה ונביאים וכתובים כולה. מלוקט מכל המפרשים...

דף רלד: על ידי ...הזעצר מנחם מנלי בר יהודה ז"ל מק"ק ווילהערמירשדארף... ועל ידי הזעציר מנחם מאניש בל"א כמר יודא שלי"ט
