On offer: Selichot - Prayers of Repentance: a book of prayer, specifically consisting of specialized prayers for days of unique significance. They are called Selichot - Prayers of Repentance. Used on Yom Kippur and other Jewish Public Fast Days. The author named it Selichot Volume 1 but the text suggests that there will be a volume 2 and 3 for days of Festival Holidays. The author of the Sefer is unidentified but it mentions a Moshe Maiy who sponsored its publication. The date of publication 1765 is produced by way of an acronym of letters whose corresponding numeric value totals - 1765. The following acknowledgement (loosely translated): "Funds were sponsored by Moshe Maiy, here in the holy city of Metz, under the governance of the Great King Louis the 15th, Emperor of France and may Hashem uplift his eminence, and may his kingdom rise ever higher and higher, Amen." All the more interesting as this was the final year of the King's reign as he died in December of 1765. Holographic notes at the top of the title page are dated 1776 followed by 1765. Former archivist notes on the inside front cover state in pencil Natan Yale Collection 1768 or Jewish Theological Seminary. The leather book's front cover is detached but present. While the rest of the covers are rubbed and otherwise poor the text block is quite nice. Overall F.
