They didn’t really mean that did they?

I went across the road for mincha yesterday, and someone showed me an old siddur that had been left there. being interested in old seforim, I took a look, however, I wasn’t quite prepared for what I saw! The title page looked innocent enough at first glance…

Now you probably can’t read the small line of print above the word “Radelheim” (which I assume was the town where it was printed), so here’s a close-up of that bit…

Raedelheim is a suburb of Frankfurt. The printer of those original siddurim was renowned for his accuracy and suposedly offered 1000 Deutsch Mark to anyone who could find an error.
