"The British Library's collection of Hebraica and Hebrew manuscripts numbers several thousand volumes, including a rich vein of illuminated documents. The thirty glorious images in this book of postcards are among the best in the Library's collection. Included are images from the Duke of Sussex German Pentateuch (c. 1300); the Golden Haggadah (c. 1320), one of the grandest of all Hebrew manuscripts; the Barcelona Haggadah (c. 1350); the Lisbon Mishneh Torah (1471-1472); the uniquely illuminated Lisbon Bible (1482); the Leipnik Haggadah (1740); and several other illustrated treasures. 30 full-color reproductions.
