List of 25 circumcisions done between 1840-1856. Includes the babies' birthdates, the names of their fathers and mothers, and the babies' names in Hebrew and Italian.

The list includes the circumcisions of Rabbi Shmuel Dovid Luzzatto's three sons from his second wife (and not just the two sons listed in other sources). In contrast to the names of the other fathers on the list, Luzzatto's name is written only with initials and without the title "Rabbi." It is quite possible that he himself was the circumciser who made this list.

[1] doubled leaf. Paper. 20x15 cm. Italian and Hebrew. Text on both sides of the leaf. Clear, legible writing.

Very fine condition.
