Magnificent six volumes Ashkenazic Machzor of Festival Prayers, translated by Rev. David Aaron De Sola, minister of the Spanish and Portuguese Jews at the Bevis Marks congregation.

This set was removed from the De Rothschild library at Exbury House, Hampshire and contains a note in French documenting its acquisition by Baron Lionel Nathan de Rothschild.
