Beautiful handwritten Pesach Haggadah (beginning from Magid) in a square vowelized script, with decorations in several places. The text of the Haggadah is written in the center of the pages, with wide margins, seemingly for future decoration. The first page is framed with a decorative frame, topped by the Luchos (the decoration of the page is incomplete). Page [6b] contains a colorful border for the ten plagues, with space left for illustrations. Page [8b] contains illustrations of Matzah and Maror. Page 10a contains decorative borders and columns, with Italian instructions (in Hebrew lettering) for the Seder. The colophon on the final page states: “Completed… by Shlomo ben Shmuel Levi”.
[18] pages. 30 cm. Fine condition. Some wear. Wine and matzo stains. Several pages detached. Original softcover binding.
Opening bid $1000
