 Miniature Siddur. Only 5.7 cm! Amsterdam, 1739

Very small sized siddur in accordance with the customs of Sephardic communities.

Antique red leather binding with gilded engravings and edges.

This siddur was printed by Rabbi Meir Crescas who traveled to Amsterdam during that time to print the Teshuvos HaTashbetz.

In his preface to the siddur, he writes that previous editions of miniature siddurim were printed without vowels (nekudos), which made it difficult for children to use,
 therefore he published this edition with
nekudos so Jewish children would have a siddur from which they could easily pray.


 Amsterdam 1739. 222 leaves.

Only 5.7cm! (approx 2.25 inches) Antique original red leather binding, preserved in new case.
 Good condition.
Item description from the ‘William L. Gross Collection’
