The 1901 Jewish Encyclopedia
Gamaliel ben Pedahzur
The pseudonym of the unknown author of a work on the Jewish ritual, the title-page of which reads. "The Book of Religion, Ceremonies, and Prayers of the Jews as Practised in Their Synagogues and Families on All Occasions; on Their Sabbath and Other Holy Days Throughout the Year. . . . Translated Immediately from the Hebrew, London, J. Wilcox, 1738." This work contains, in addition to the first English translation of the Jewish prayer-book and a guide to the same, an elaborate account of Jewish ceremonies as they were observed by strictly orthodox Jews in former times. It is an exceedingly quaint compilation, evidently written by a Jew, but the identity of the author has never been discovered.
