Birkat HaChamah is recited once every 28 years. Compositions and compilations printed for the occasion were generally not saved, since the next time they would be used would be in another 28 years. This is an especially rare compilation.

Order of the recital of this special blessing printed for the Birkat HaChamah in Nissan, 1841.
Includes the laws of reciting the blessing, discussions regarding the blessing, order of the blessing and prayers and hymns. Additional hymn for circumcision at the conclusion. The order of the blessing follows that of Rabbi Yaakov Meldula and was printed by Rabbi David Meldula, rabbi of the Shaar HaShamayim congregation in London, with an interesting foreword by him.

[8] leaves. 12 cm. Very fine condition. New half-leather binding.
