Le Hagada de Pesaj/ Haggadah Shel Pesach [VENICE, 1740, BILINGUAL HEBREW/SPANISH]

Jerusalem: Lipshitz Press/ "Imprenta Liphshitz" 1952. Facsimile edition. Hardcover. Large Folio. 16 1/4 x11". 12 unpaginated double-sided leaves. Illustrated tan paper (faux-vellum) boards, with facsimile gilt lettering on the front cover. Beautifully decorated endpapers in gilt. This finely produced Passover Haggadah reproduces the contents (text) from the 1740 Venice Haggadah (see Yaari 116), and contains illustrations reproduced after the original woodcut engravings from 1609 and 1629 Venice Haggadahs (see Yerushalmi, plates 44 and 54 among others). The original 1740 edition had running marginal translation in Italian, here replaced by Spanish. A facsimile of the original title page from that edition is reproduced on the final leaf of this book. The cover illustration of this book, in color, is taken from an image from the famed Sarajevo Haggadah. Pages visually reproduce the look of vellum from the original 1740 edition.
