Description

This text was prepared by William Gross:

Passover Haggadah - Beit Chorin, with the Alshech, Gevurot Hashem and Olelot Efraim commentaries. Metz, 1767. Additional, engraved title page. Engraved illustrations based on Avraham ben Yaakov HaGer's illustrations to the Amsterdam Haggadah. [2], 64 leaves.
This is one of the classic illustrated Haggadot, roughly patterened after the famous Amsterdam Haggada, but with original differences and is the first French Haggadah to be printed with a fold-out map at the end.
Yaari 162; Otzar HaHaggadot 251.

One of the first Hebrew books printed in Metz
