By David Leonardi on January 28, 2013
Format: Hardcover
This is a great reference book showing sample pages from many old books. Plate 2 is a page from "The Second Leningrad Bible" Egypt, Fostat (Old Cairo) about year 1008 to 1010 AD. The page shown from this is a very decorative page; description begins : "This Bible is textually one of the most important biblical manuscripts, as it contains a very accurate masoretic text based on an earlier manuscript believed to be in the tradition of Moses b. Aaron b. Asher . . . "p.44

Plate 3 shows 4 pages from "Shelah Lekha" Egypt 1106-1107. This text is complete and does not originate from a genizah.

Plate 4 Yemenite Pentateuch.

Plate 5 Damascus Keter.

Plate 8 Golden Haggadah, Spain, probably Barcelona c. 1320. One of the earliest and most sumptuous of the surviving Spanish Haggadot of the 14th century.

Other plates following are Spanish Haggadah.

Plate 20 Lisbon Bible, Portugal 1483.

Plate 22 Dragon Haggadah, and prayers for Passover and Sukkot, France 13th century.

British museum miscellany, of biblical, ritual, legal, grammatical, astronomical, historical, mystical, calendric and other treatises, Eastern France, 1280.

Plate 30 Kaufmann Mishneh Torah. Maimonides' Mishneh Torah, Cologne, 1295-96: "This four-volume, giant manuscript is one of the most beautiful manuscripts of its kind. . ." p.100

Plates of Mahzor Bibles

Plate 36 Parma Bible "This two volume manuscript is an example of the large Ashkenazi Bibles of the 13th and 14th centuries. . ." p.112

The last plate in this volume is on page 161. Plates are on the odd numbered pages and descriptions are on the even numbered pages beginning on page 42. So there are 120 plates.

A beautiful edition concludes an explanatory part and of high quality plates presenting the manuscripts from around the Old World, their translations on opposite pages.

Educative, comprehensive work of a great scientific, historic and art value.

Beautiful book and perfect handling. Wrapped so well that 2 days in the rain (my fault) didn't even get it wet.
