Resource Toolbox

Town in Italy, about twenty-two miles east-southeast of Cremona. In Sept., 1485, Joshua Solomon and Moses, sons of Israel Nathan of Soncino, began to print a large Maḥ zor according to the Roman ritual. In the following year they erected a printing-establishment in the neighboring town of Casal Maggiore, where they completed the second part of the book, which contains 320 folio leaves. The Maḥ zor, of which a number of copies were printed on parchment, was the only work printed at Casal Maggiore.
