Description Information
   Second edition of translation. [2], 356 pp. and frontispiece, octavo 210:130 mm., wide margins, gild edges, linen end-papers, light age staining. A very good copy bound in contemporary half leather and cloth boards, rubbed.
   Bi-lingual Hebrew French mahzor forYom Kippur arranged by Elcan Durlacher. The volume opens with a French title page describing the volume as ou, Rituel de toutes les grandes fêtes, à l'usage des Israélites du rite allemand, traduites en français par E. Durlacher. There is a full page tinted drawing of the Kohen Gadol on Yom Kippur wearing the priestly garments he officiated in with the breastplate and mitre. On his left are two goats, one to be sent to Azziel the other to be an animal sacrifice. On his right is an urn in which the Kohen Gadol will select the lot determining which goat is used for which purpose. Two other kohanim are standing by the Kohen Gadol, one on each side, and the Temple is in the background. There is a second title page in Hebrew and a half-title-page in both French and Hebrew. The text is in facing Hebrew and French pages, beginning with benedictions said daily in the morning through all of Shaharit for Yom Kippur. Additional services are not in this volume.

Elcan Durlacher was a Hebraist and publisher; born at Karlsruhe, Germany, in 1817; died Dec. 21, 1889. He went to Paris in 1845 as a teacher of languages, and founded a Hebrew publishing-house, which was continued, after his death, by his son. He compiled a Hebrew reader and an almanac, and wrote a small book entitled "Joseph and His Brothers." His two most notable works are a French translation of the German Maḥzor, and another of the daily prayer-book, which he made with the assistance of L. Wogue, whose edition of the Pentateuch he published.
