Passover Haggadah with the Nofet Tzufim commentary by Rabbi Moshe Nechemiah Kahana. Bomberg press. Ya'ari 813; Otzar HaHaggadot 1101.

Includes the leaf with 'Minchat Marcheshet' - the rare dedication leaf preceding the title page. The dedication leaf was printed by the Bek press of Jerusalem, in 1861, with the addition of the recipient's name and the name of the Haggadah, in the author's handwriting.

The dedication leaf before us is exactly the copy that appears in the Winograd CD, serial number: 81040. Only one additional copy is known, which is in the National Library. Extremely rare.

Rabbi Moshe Nechemiah Kahana [1817-1887] was Rosh Av Beit Din of Petrovitch and Choslovitz in Belarus. One of the heads of the 'Etz Chaim' Yeshivah in Jerusalem and author of Netivot Shalom.

[1], 20 leaves. 22 cm. The upper margins of the first leaves are cropped. Fine condition. Wine stains. Tiny isolated tears in the white margins. New binding.
