Illustrated Passover Haggadah, in Hebrew and "Lashon Ashkenazim", with the Tzeli Esh commentary. Venice: Alvise Bragadin, [1716].
Each page of text enclosed in a fine decorative border. Many woodcut illustrations.
This Haggadah was simultaneously printed in three editions, one with a Judeo-Italian translation, one with Ladino translation, and the third (the present edition), described on the title page as being in "Hebrew and Lashon Ashkenazim". The latter edition comprises a Judeo-Italian (and not Yiddish) translation, though unlike the Judeo-Italian edition, the text of Birkat HaMazon here follows Ashkenazi rite.
