   Title: Tal-orot, Trauer-Album : Gebete und Betrachtungen fuer die Seelenfeier, Jahrzeit und an den Gräbern aller Verwandten.

A volume of mourner's prayers for burial, Yizkor, Yahrzeit and visiting the cemetery compiled by Oscar Sachiarasohn, who is also the German translator of R. Moshe Hayyim Luzzatto's Mesillat Yesharim (Budapest, 1907).

The text is mainly in German, though some prayers are given in Hebrew, and occasional Hebrew words and phrases are interspersed throughout the volume. A small section is in Hungarian (from pages 49-64) and the change from German to Hungarian seems to be rather abrupt. The kaddish is transliterated on page 26 for those who cannot read Hebrew.
