Twenty-seven pieces of illustrated broadsides from synagogues and yeshivas. Italy, late 18th-early 19th century, ca. 1789-1811.
Broadside parts, illustrated with decorations in floral and colorful fruit motifs, emphasized titles and other decorations. Most of the broadsides include name lists of community members, including parts with the names of the "Hevrat Kevarim" members, the "Mekaimei Torah" yeshiva, the "Bikur Cholim" society, a "tavlita" (plaque) from the "Rachamim Yeshiva" and more. Some of the items are dated to the Jewish years 5549, 5550, 5551, 5553, 5555 and 5571 (1789, 1790, 1791, 1793, 1795 and 1811). Most of the leaves seem to have been removed from the Binding Gniza. Enclosed: handwritten leaf from Amsterdam and part of a ketubah from Cochin.
Size and condition vary.
