Mishneh Torah LaRambam from Moshe ben Shealtiel's press - before [1492] or [1497] - numbered facsimile - no. 141 of a 390 copy leather-bound numbered edition, Makkor publishing, Jerusalem 1975.

Facsimile made from a photocopy of the copy which is in the library of the Beit Midrash L'Rabbanim in America and from parts of different copies including "Mada," "Ahava," and "Zmanim" from Mishneh Torah LaRambam. Preface by S. Z. Havlin. (Including additional leaf for the preface). From the preface: 'We count at least four different prints of this work, all from the beginning of the days of print, and all, in a sense, first prints, and they are not dependent on each other ... the most respected is the mechanical print named for its printer, Moshe ibn Shealtiel.'

Elegant semi-leather binding with gilt imprint. Very fine condition.
