Re: Prayer Book Translated by B Meyers Alexander#general

I would certainly be interested in locating a subscription list. But let us be certain about particular details of this Prayer Book: location of publication, language or languages of text. I can provide the following information of an Alexander who began printing Hebrew Sephardic prayer books with English translation for the entire liturgical year (1771-1776). He began printing Hebrew books in 1770 but I don't know which ones.. His full name was Alexander Alexander (d. 1807) and lived in London. One possible identification source: Simeon Singer, "Early Translations and Translators of the Jewish Liturgy in England," Transactions of the Jewish Historical Society of England 3 (1898-1898, pp. 36-71.
