2 illustrations, in Italian
Imrei Lev - Preghiere D’un Cuore Israelita [festival prayers] Italian text only, with occasional Hebrew. Prepared by Marco Tedeschi. Four parts in one. Lithographed title printed in blue. Two fine lithographedplates by A. Hoenig. pp. (6), 359. Lightly browned. Roan backed salmon boards with gilt tooling, extremities worn. 8vo. Asti (Piedmont), Fratelli Paglieri, 1852. $1500-2000❧The two expressive plates depict a synagogue congregation at prayerand an emotive death-bed scene (both unknown to Rubens). The death-bed scene depicts family members with prayer-books in their hands- thus depicting the tradition requiring those in the presence of thedying to recite a selection of Psalms and related prayers. A gentleman points heavenward, seemingly encouraging the dying man to recite the confession.The introduction specifies that the prayer book was primarily intended for women, both for their own use and for the purpose of instructing their children. An entire section is devoted to prayers relating to death andmourning and concludes with meditations on the nature of the soul andimmortality.
