Ayelet HaShachar - Two Editions - Mantua, 1612, First Edition / Mantua, 1724, Second Edition - Handwritten Glosses / Tikkun Bakashot Anshei Maamad - Mantua, 1621
Three books (in two volumes), printed for the use of the Shomrim LaBoker society in Mantua:
1-2. Ayelet HaShachar, Psalms, piyyutim, prayers and supplications recited by the members of the Shomrim LaBoker society in Mantua. Mantua: Eliezer d'Italia, [1612]. First edition. Bound with: Tikkun Bakashot Anshei Maamad, additions to Ayelet HaShachar - supplications to be recited after Maamadot, by R. Efraim of Fano (brought to print by R. Moshe Yoffe). Mantua: Judah Samuel of Perugia and sons, 1621.
The title page of Tikkun Bakashot Anshei Maamad states that these supplications were printed "To complete and be attached to the end of the Shomrim LaBoker siddur", as was done in this copy (regarding this copy, see: Simonsohn, Toldot HaYehudim BeDukasut Mantova, II, Jerusalem 1965, p. 403, note 145).
168; 10; 8 leaves. 14 cm. Condition varies, fair-good. Stains, dampstains and wear. Worming and tears to several leaves, slightly affecting text. Original cardboard cover, damaged.
3. Ayelet HaShachar, Psalms, prayers and supplications recited by the members of the Shomrim LaBoker society in Mantua. Mantua: Refael Chaim d'Italia, [1724]. Second edition, with additions. Signature on the title page: "Yisrael Elisha HaLevi". This copy contains glosses and additions in Italian script, on the front endpapers and in the book, documenting the customs of the society (for instance: "In 1784, the first day of Rosh Hashana fell on Shabbat, and they began reciting the supplications on Monday morning of that week…", "That year, Tzidkatecha was recited in the synagogue during Mincha of Shabbat"). On p. 171b, at the top of the prayer instituted for "plentiful rainfall", documentation of the years it was recited: "Recited here in Mantua from today, Sunday, 7th Kislev 1788", "Recited 28th Cheshvan 1792".
This copy is a variant comprising all 186 leaves (leaves 177-185 contain prayers recited in Ferrara. Leaf 186 is an errata leaf. Compare: Bibliography of the Hebrew Book, listing 000182665).
186 leaves. 18.5 cm. Good condition. Stains. Parchment binding, slightly damaged.
