A Panorama in Facsimile of Five Centuries of the Printed Haggadah from the Collections of Harvard University and the Jewish Theological Seminary of America By Yosef Hayim Yerushalmi 8.7"x11.8" (500 Pages)Publisher: Jewish Publication Society, 1997/2011
A panoramic view of the evolution of the Passover haggadah, from the beginnings of Hebrew printing into modern times. With an updated preface by the author.
Haggadah & History is much more than a history of the Passover story. It is also a mirror of the last five centuries in Jewish history as reflected in the haggadah itself.
Two hundred facsimile plates reproduce representative pages from rare printed haggadot in two of the world's outstanding Judaica collections: the libraries of Harvard University and The Jewish Theological Seminary. This visual history is complemented by Professor Yerushalmi's fascinating historical introduction and richly detailed place descriptions. The result is a rare blend of scholarship and art.
