Pesach Haggadah with a Yiddish- Deutch translation, by Joel Brill. As opposed to most of the Hagaddos of that era which were illustrated with copper engravings this Hagadah was illustrated by means of woodcut illustrations. The illustrations which depict biblical scenes are of great interest to bibliographers in general and Hagadah collectors in particular.
See, The Passover Hagada through the Generations by Isaac Rivkind (New York 1961) pp 6-7.
With the original rare chessboard binding, not found in most copies. This binding is extremely rare.
