Folio, original dark blue cloth, patterned endpapers, original dark blue cloth slipcase. Facsimile of a lovely illuminated Hebrew manuscript Haggadah of the mid-15th-century, from the collections of the British Library, written and illuminated by Joel Ben Simeon Feibusch Ashkenazi, with a commentary attributed to Eleazar Ben Judah of Worms. This splendid facsimile reproduces the lovely original colour illuminations, miniatures, borders and initial-words; the scrupulous facsimile process even reproduces the light staining that affects the original manuscript. With detailed introduction, notes, transcription and English translation by David Goldstein, Curator of Hebrew Manuscripts and Printed Books at the British Library, London. In fine condition.
