It reads "The Akathist for the Dormition of the Theotokos." The image on the other page seems to match it.

To be more precise, the title is "The Akathist for the Dormition of the All-Holy Theotokos." I was in a hurry earlier, so my apologies.

I've never been very good at reading Slavonic numerals but I do believe it was printed in 1863 by the Kiev Pechersk Lavra.
