Notes:
"This pioneering American edition contains the evening liturgy for the High Holy Days. A second volume, containing a translation of the morning liturgy for the High Holidays, the festivals and the Sabbath, appeared in 1766. Dividing up the liturgy for the evening and morning into two separate volumes was an innovation of the present edition. The translator listed in the second volume was Isaac Pinto, and it is widely presumed that he was also responsible for this first volume. Isaac Pinto (1720-1791) immigrated to America from the West Indies. A merchant and teacher of Spanish, Pinto was a member of Shearith Israel, the only Jewish congregation in New York City from 1654 until 1825."- cf. -Important Judaica including property from the estate Of Shlomo Moussaieff.
