Passover haggadah "with new German translation ... as printed in Berlin ..." [Offenbach, at Tzvi Hirsch Segal Schpitz Press], 1795.
The translation is in Tze'enah U'Re'enah letters, printed at the bottom of the pages. The title page bears the printer's device (refer to A. Ya'ari,
Diglei HaMadpisim HaIvri'im, Jerusalem, 1944, no. 159). The picture was printed later "in Amsterdam."
Especially rare haggadah, not listed by Ya'ari; listed in
Otzar HaHaggadot according to a copy in the Florsheim collection. Several similar haggadahs were printed in Offenbach; the one before us is especially rare.
40 leaves, 18 cm.
Otzar HaHaggadot 382.
Fine condition. Typical aging and wine stains. Original red cardboard binding with gilt imprint. Lacking spine.
