The following description was prepared by William Gross:

This is a Machzor according to the Sephardic rite, one of many such books printed in Vienna over the course of the 19th century for the Sephardic communities of the East, primarly in the Ottoman Empire. The prayers are according to the Kabbalah of the Ari. The frontispiece with illustration of man praying holding a prayer book is exceptionally unusual. It is stated that the book was printed for Kustandina (Istanbul), the countries of the East and West and Italy.
The Hraschanzky printing firm began with the activity of Joseph Hraschanzky. He fist learned the printing trade with the Neumann printing house in Mikulov after which time he opened his own publishing house in Vienna. He was an active printer in Vienna from 1785 to 1806. the date of his death, with the first Hebrew book issued from his press in 1787/88. His son, Georg, continued the activity of the firm, almost exclusively in the Hebrew book field, until 1813. But the times were difficult in Vienna and the business suffered difficulties. In that year the firm was sold and further printings were issued under the name of Georg Holtzinger. Hraschansky printed books in several languages including a significant section for Hebrew books and exported his publications. During the 30 years of the Hraschanzky firm, they printed 219 books of which 111 were in Hebrew.
