Book Description Jerusalem & Tel-Aviv Massada Press and Alumoth [1956], 1956. A fine trade edition of this famous illustrated and lettered Haggadah. Extensively illustrated throughout with the beautiful reproductions of Arthur Szyk’s masterful colour paintings and Hebrew lettering originally produced for the 1939 limited production Haggadah of only 250 copies. 4to, in the publisher's fine original binding of full deep blue velvet gilt lettered and decorated on the spine, and with a large gilt chalice on the upper cover, in the original slipcase and plain protective dustjacket. 54 leaves, 108 pages unnumbered. A very fine copy, the book is near as pristine with none of the typical wear or crushing to the velvet, internally also pristine, the slipcase with just minor age evidence. One of the most beautiful Haggadahs available, the text is printed left to right in English and right to left in the gorgeously rendered and decorated Hebrew reproduced from Szyk's manuscripts and paintings. The original 1939 Haggadah produced by American artist Arthur Szyk has been called by many one of the most impressive books published in the 20th century. This fine facsimile reproduction captures Szyk’s amazing use of colour, his expressive human figures and his dynamic ornamentation and lettering quite flawlessly. The Haggadah (Hebrew for "the telling"), the great book of freedom, tells the story of the exodus of the ancient Hebrews from slavery in Egypt. One of Judaism’s most popular works of religious literature, it has been used during the Seder meal of the holiday of Passover—that is, Pesach—for more than one thousand years. Jewish artists first began illustrating the Haggadah during the Middle Ages (the Sarajevo Haggadah of the 14th century is a well-known example), a vibrant tradition still observed today. Without question, one of the most beautiful and moving of all illustrated Haggadot is the beloved Haggadah of Arthur Szyk (1894-1951). Drawn and first published during the rise of Hitler, The Szyk Haggadah is a triumphant and enduring work of hope and courage, the supreme expression of one artist’s love for his people and his heritage. A Polish Jew keenly aware of current events, Szyk fused his two passions—art and history—into a visual commentary on the dangerous parallel between the Passover narrative of oppression in ancient Egypt and the alarming developments unfolding in Nazi Germany in the 1930s. The artist adopted illuminated miniature painting—an antique and nearly forgotten technique—to comment on the politics of his day. The end result is so spectacular that the words of an early reviewer still ring true: "The Szyk Haggadah is worthy to be placed among the most beautiful of books that the hand of man has produced.".

Book Description published by Massadah and Alumoth, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, 1957. Or. royal blue velvet binding. 56 double-leaved pages with the Hebrew text, an English translation, and profusively illustrated in full color. Arthur Szyk (Lodz 1894-New York 1951), illustrator, miniaturist and cartoonist. He illustrated many books, among them The Book of Esther, Flaubert's Temptations of Saint Anthony and Ludwig Lewisohn's Last days of Shylock. In 1940 he went to the U.S., where he draw cartoons lampooning the Nazi leaders. These were collected in a volume, The New Order (1941). Szyk was noted for his refined draftmanship and calligraphy, in the style of medieval manuscript-illumination, as shown in the sumptuous edition of the Haggadah (first published 1940). This Haggadah, described by the Times of London as "worthy to be placed among the most beautiful books that the hand of man has produced", was executed in a close imitation of the illuminated manuscripts of the Middle Ages. His Hebrew lettering is superbly decorative and his colors have the luminosity of Gothic stained glass windows. This copy's front and back boards gilt-stamped with Kiddush goblet motif, illustrated endpapers, in the original three-quarter morocco clamshell box. Seller Inventory # 56428
