Re: Hebrew Book printed in Rodelhem #germany

In 1799 Heidenreich and Baschwitz received a privilege from the Count of Solms-Rödelheim and founded an "oriental- und occidentalische Buchdruckerei" (oriental and occidental printing house) at Rödelheim (east of Frankfurt). The writing "Ode an Ihre Hochgräfliche Erlaucht Herrn Vollrath regierenden Reichsgrafen zu Solms-Rödelheim und Assenheim etc." (Ode to Your High Countess Erlaucht Mr. Vollrath reigning Reichsgrafen zu Solms-Rödelheim and Assenheim etc.) is probably a poem of praise on the count. An issue is located in the Hessian State Archives Darmstadt, but cannot be viewed at this time, as it is closed until further notice.
