Chamishah Chumshei Torah Tikkun Sofrim, Amsterdam, printed by order of philanthropists Shmuel Mendez, Moshe Tzarfati Da Girona and David Gomish da Silva. 1726. Five especially magnificent leather bindings. The title pages were hand-painted just after the printing.

Beautiful print of chamishah chumshei Torah on high-quality paper with wide margins. Each chumash has a magnificent painted title page with three pictures from the Tana"ch hinting at the names of the three printers.

Original especially magnificent leather bindings, gilt on both sides and along the thickness of the bindings, in an especially wide pattern of leaves and pomegranates, with an imprint of the owner's name, Aharon Amar, S"T.

Does not include the part with the haftarot and the table for the holidays. The first part does not have all the leaves of indices, as they sometimes appear in the haftarah section.

16.5 cm. The books' leaves are in very fine condition. Minimal aging stains. Gilt page edges. The title page of Vayikra is not painted.

The bindings are in fine condition. Slight blemishes in the corners. Slight blemishes in the spine of part I. The spine of Part III has been professionally restored.
