Sarajevo Haggadah, facsimile edition.

The illustrations were printed in France and the text in Yugoslavia. Published by Kedem, Jerusalem, 1973. This manuscript is one of the most famous decorated Hebrew manuscripts from the Middle Ages. The Haggadah is composed of 84 parchment leaves, with 69 decorations on the first 34 leaves, which serve as an important and faithful testimony to the art of the Jewish book in the classic period. At the beginning of the book is an introduction about the significance of this haggadah in art history, by Bezalel [Cecil] Roth. 

Very fine condition.
