Vellum manuscript, prayers and pleas. [Italy, c. 17th century].
Small format booklet. Square Italian Hebrew script.
Contains: Seder Teki'at Shofar [verses and plea according to rites of Italian communities]; Vidui (confession) for Yom Kippur by Rabbeinu Bechaye the Dayan [author of Chovat HaLevavot], (first printed in the Bolonya 1541 machzor at the end of the Yom Kippur prayers); "Yotzer for Hoshanah Rabba", verses to recite "at the end of Ne'ila Selichot"; "Yotzer of Hashanah Rabba" (Otzar HaShira V'hapiyyut, Vol. 3, p. 504, no. 2065, there cited as a Siene custom); piyyut, "Beyom ze Yechayeinu" (does not appear in Otzar HaShira V'Hapiyyut).

10 vellum leaves, [20] written pages. 15.5 cm. Good-fair condition. Stains. Apparently, on some leaves the writing was reinforced (at a later time) by writing over the letters in ink. On other leaves, the original writing remains (partially faded). New vellum binding.
