An English abstract of the Shemoneh Esrei from 1706.

Here's a description of the Shemoneh Esrei/ Amidah prayer from 1706.

This is from Discourses of the Ecclesiastical and Civil Polity of the Jews
by Isaac Abendana (1640-1710). Isaac Abendana was the brother of Jacob Abendana, the Haham of the Spanish-Portuguese Jews of London. This "Learned Jew" also translated the entire Mishnah into Latin, although it was never published.
