PJ4831.H36 1660

Nathan Nata of Hannover is well known for his Yeven Metsulah (Venice, 1653), which chronicles the horrors of the 1648-49 Chmielnicki massacres of Jews in the Ukraine, from whence he fled to Venice.  This book, by the same author, is a phrase book including Hebrew, German, Italian, and Latin, all in Hebrew characters, written to assist refugees like himself in settling into their new lands.
