Kinot for Tisha B’Av. Printed by the Shapira brothers, Zhitomir 1860. Copy not known in the bibliography.

According to the Polish, Lithuanian, and Russian traditions. Printed by the Shapira brothers. The books of Kinot printed in Zhitomir are not found (as is known) since traditionally at the time, the book of Kinot would be put into Gniza after Tisha B’Av with the belief that the next year would bring the Messiah with it. The known copies of the Kinot from 1860 have translation into Yiddish. The book before us does not. 91 pages, light defects to the binding. Excellent condition.
