Haggadah Seder shel Pesach

Salzburg: Meshulam Zalman b. Aaron, 1755. Revised. Hardcover. Folio. 15 leaves. Contemporary brown leather with gold tooling on the spine. Red edges and decorated floral endpapers. Illustrated title page with Moses and Aaron on the sides with depictions of the scenes from Genesis of Jacob stealing the blessing, the binding of Isaac and Jacob's ladder on the bottom. Revised edition of the 1695 Amsterdam Haggadah illustrated by the convert to Judaism Abraham b. Jacob. These woodcut illustrations are largely based on the work of the early 17th century Swiss Christian biblical artist Matthaeus Merian. Of particular note are the illustrations of Abraham smashing his father's idols, the four sons and the drowning of the Egyptians. Includes the "Zevach Pesach" commentary of Isaac Abarbanel as well as a mystical commentary. The songs Adir Hu, Ahad mi Yodaya and Had Gadya are translated into Judeo-German. Revised edition offers a larger and clearer print. This edition should not be confused with the Furth Haggadah printed in the same year also with the Abarbanel commentary. Text in Hebrew and Judeo-German. Inscription on front free endpaper. Name of previous owner on title page. Boards bowed, chipped and scratched. Hole in center of title page. Staining, chipping and creasing to leaves. Numerous leaves are strengthened. Overall in good condition. g. Item #37868
