Comments

Superb facsimile of this beautiful illuminated manuscript, "commissioned in 1470 in northern Italy . . . the most exquisite of all Hebrew illuminated manuscripts. The facsimile was printed in up to eleven colors on a specially milled vegetable parchment. Gold and silver were applied to most of the illuminations by hand." (all quotes from the publisher's label on back of mat).
