Prague, 1633: R’ Moshe Heynoch’s, author of Brantshpiggel passed away.

Brantshpiggel is a book of etiquette written by R’ Moshe in Yiddish, aimed for ladies. It was printed in the Tzur font (known mainly through sefer Tz’ena uR’einah, where this font was used), which is not in use anymore, but was very popular with sefarim printed in Yiddish. It’s a mix of a regular font and ksav meshuta-Yiddish script.
