Spine says [volume] II but Vinograd does not list the other volumes as having been printed that year. There was a set printed that same year but the title is different: Minhag Ashkenaz.

Shminit Atzeret leaves 64-66 and Passover leaves 28-30 each have small engravings of the 12 zodiac which differ from the regular ones used in Ashkenazic mahzorim. Front paste down endpaper has inscription in pen: Mr. Asher Goldsmid Taf kuf ayin bet [=1812] GOLDSMID: A family of English financiers, who trace descent from a certain Uri ha-Levi of Emden. The following were some of the prominent members of the family: Aaron F. Goldsmid: London merchant and founder of the Goldsmid family of England; born at Amsterdam; died June 3, 1782. He was the son of Benedict Goldsmid, a Hamburg merchant. In 1765 he left Holland with his family to settle in London, where he founded the firm of Aaron Goldsmid & Son, subsequently Goldsmid & Eliason. The firm of Aaron Goldsmid & Son experienced serious reverses through the failure of Clifford & Sayer, one of the principal houses in Holland. Hence only George, the eldest son, entered into partnership with his father. The other sons founded new businesses for themselves in which they amassed large fortunes. Goldsmid left four sons and four daughters. The second son, ASHER, was one of the founders of the firm Mocatta & Goldsmid, bullion-brokers to the Bank of England. Benjamin and Abraham were famous as financiers and philanthropists. Bibliography: Levy Alexander, Memoirs of Benjamin Goldsmid of Roehampton, 1808; James Picciotto, Sketches of Anglo-Jewish History.
