One single scribe:

 

Hayyim ben Asher Anshel

Main text and instructions

fols. 1-10v.

 

Script

Main text written in square Ashkenazi script, in different sizes, in brown and light brown ink.

Instructions in Hebrew and Yiddish written in small semi-cursive Ashkenazi script in brown ink.

Four initial words written in larger square Ashkenazi script in darker brown ink (fols. 1v, 7v, 8, 9v)

 

 

Number of lines

Main text:

15 (fols. 1v-3v) – 17 (fols. 5-7)

   

Ruling

The original ruling in plummet, today no discernible except for fol. 10v.

 

Pricking

Pricking is discernible along the outer margins of the text space (fols. 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 10).

 

Quires

Three quires, one of 4 leaves and two of 3 leaves. Missing text between quires 1 and 2 (between fols. 3v and 4), indicates that at least one leave with text is missing. Considering the large part of text missing (all the service for the circumcision), it seems that an entire quire is missing.

35 Binding

Binding: 124 X 84 X12-13 mm

Box: 136 X 90 X29 mm.

 

Black leather binding with blind-tooled designs of a foliate scroll motif interspersed with fruit (pomegranates?) and flowers on either side. The manuscript is kept in a brown leather box, decorated with 49 (7x7) compartments of alternating tooled rosettes and fleurs-de-lis. Stamped on the spine, in gold letters:

 

"Seder Milah, Kittsea, [5]518"

 

36 Decoration Program

The decoration was made close to the writing of the text by the scribe himself. It consists of one title-page (fol. 1) and of four initial word panels; all executed in light brown ink, and filled in monochrome light gray shadows.  

 

  1. One title-page: with figures of Moses and Aharon flanking the central panel with the title inscription (fol. 1)
  2. Four initial words panels: written within elaborated cartouches, (fols. 1v, 8, 7v, 9v), decorated with floral scrolls one unframed (fol. 7v), but decorated with cartouches, foliate scrolls, flowers and birds.
36 Summary and Remarks

This small Circumcision Service (Seder Brit Milah) manuscript is missing the last part of the verses recited before the ceremony, the all circumcision service and the beginning of Grace after Meals  (see: Content).

The title-page of the manuscript (fol. 1) states that it was copied in Kittsee, near Pressbourg, in [5]518=1758 and belonged to Rabbi Jacob of Lackenbach, as indicated by the scribal inscription within the lower cartouche. The patron can be identified with Jacob ben Leser of Lackenbach, mentioned in the register (pinkas) of the community of Eisenstaadt (see: Cod. hebr. 222, Kat.-Nr. ##, No. 40, f. 130v; Wachstein, 1926, 70f. No. 40-40a), one of the most important communities of Europe at that time, and the leading of the "Seven communities" (Siebengemeinde) of Burgenland, which included Mattersburg (Mattersdorf), Lackenbach, Deutschkreutz (Tzelm?), Kobersdorf, Frauenkirchen and also Kittsee (Koepcseny ???), (at that time Hungary). In the pinkas it is recorded that Jakob b. Leser was admitted to that community on March 8th, 1751.

 

Although the scribe does not leave his name, the palaeographic and stylistic features of the manuscript indicate a strong resemblance to the hand of Hayyim ben Asher Anshel. Known to have been active as a teacher in Kittsee since 1725 (see: Monumenta Hungaria, 1974, XVI, 108), his activity as scribe and artist is testified between 1741 till 1782, two years before his death (according to his tombstone's inscription in the Jewish cemetery of Kittsee: April 20, 1784; see: Scheiber, Kittsee, 1980, p. 44, no. 2). Till now, twenty-seven manuscripts have been attributed to him, many of them also decorated (see: ibid. for complete bibliography).

 

The style of the decoration in the Viennamanuscripts is characterized by sketchy-like ink drawing with very few details both for human figures and architectonic and ornamental patterns, coloured in slight grey water-colour. Part of the drawing is outlined with dotted lines in the same tonality of brown ink. The same monochromatic and sketchy style is found in other manuscripts copied by Hayyim ben Asher Anshel in the same years, such as the Grace after Meals held in the collection of Robert Marx in Hilford, USA (Fig. #), dated 1753 (Fig. in Scheiber, 1980, fig. 4). Another stylistic comparison can be made with the manuscript including Kiddush, Grace after Meals and Blessings for various occasions (Private collection; formerly Amsterdam, M. H. Gans, No. 65; see Scheiber, 1966, table III, fig. 1 u. 2), also signed by the same scribe but undated (Fig. #), especially for the birds placed within the initial word panel, on fol. 2, similar to those flanking the initial word cartouche on fol. 7v of our manuscript. Presumably our scribe-artist was autodidact and used printed patterns, as is evident from the only one richly illustrated Passover Haggadah copied in Vienna in 1748 (William L. Gross Collection, Ramat Aviv, Israel, no. 17), and for whose illustration Asher Anshel used printed patterns from the iconographic traditions of the Amsterdam (1712) and the Venetian (1609) Haggadot (see Scheiber, 1980, 45).

 

This manuscript, produced by one of the leader scribes-artists in Kittsee for a prominent figure, Rabbi Jacob (ben Lezer) of Lackenbach, is a precious witness of the prolific cultural and Jewish life in the Burgenland. The mid 18th century represented a period of high revival of the art of Hebrew manuscripts decoration that flourished in Central and Eastern Europe since the beginning of the century till the early 19th century.

 

At least before 1974 the manuscript was in the collection Rabbi Yaakov Schwarz, whose ex-libris can be found on fol. IIIv (see: History). On October 15, 1974, the manuscript was auctioned off in Sotheby’s (Parke Bernet Public Auction, cat. No. 326) and then (Andreas, please check the date of the donation/purchase of the ms) reached the Austrian National Library through a private owner. The pencil-page-numbers and the entry on fol. 1  Restauro refer to an older restoration (of the 20th century) inItaly.

 

 

 

38 Suggested Reconstruction
39 History/Provenance
Fol. 1, in the cartouche at the center of the bottom of the architectural frontispiece: owner's inscription written in semi-cursive Ashkenazi script by the hand of the scribe:
שייך להר"ר / יעקב מלאקין/ באך
"Belongs to R. Yaakov of Lackenbach"

Fol IIIv (verso of the 3rd front flyleaf): the oval ex-libris of Yaakov Schwarz, inscribed:
אוסף יעקב שוורץ
“Yaakov Schwarz’s collection”; the inscription is written following the edge of the oval stamp, enclosing a crowned heraldic lion regardant aside a seven-branched lit Menorah.


Holding the manuscript upside down, on fols. 10v, 9v, 5v, 6v numeration in Arabic ciphers is discernable in the upper-left corners of the pages (clearly readable respectively are numbered: 1, 2, 6, 7), probably by the hand of the later binder.


Binding restoration possibly of the 20th century, done in Italy as attested by the inscription on fol. 1 Restauro (for Karl-George: can you please verify this from your document)


15 October 1974: sold in Sotheby’s to a private collector (Yehuda Elberg, Montreal, according to the Microfilm Institute database), and then donated to the Österreichische Nationalbibliothek (for Andreas: can you please check when it was donated?)

20 Description Fol. 1: The frontispiece of the manuscript shows a frame divided into four panels, enclosing the inscription: “Order of laws and prayers of the circumcision ceremony, executed here in Kittsee, in the year [5]518 (1758)" (סדר דינים ותפילות השייכים לברית מילה – נעשה פה ק"ק קיצע שנת תקי"ח לפק). Flanking the text are Moses on the right and Aharon on the left, each standing on a pedestal within a niche, topped by an elaborated conch. Moses, wearing a draped tunique, holds the two arched Tables of the Law and two horns trim from his head; Aharon wears a long robe with a sketchy breastplate, the High-priest mitre (miznefet) on his head, and holds the incense box on his left hand. In the central cartouche at the bottom of the frame is the inscription: "Belongs to R. Yaakov of Lackenbach" (שייך להר"ר יעקב מלאקין באך). At the center of the top panel of the frame an empty cartouche is flanked by two semi-nude winged putti, against a gray background.
