Offenbach, Rabbi Zvi Hirsh Segal Spitz & son Rabbi Avraham Segal, [1794-95].
£2,500
Scarce Ashkenazic Passover Haggadah.

Complete with Yiddish translation and notes in Wayber-Taytsch lettering, based on the Berlin Haggadah of 1785. The title page bears the printer's device of Rabbi Zvi Hirsh Segal Spitz and his son Rabbi Avraham (see Ya'ari Hebrew Printers' Marks 158).

The last page includes 'Bircat Iruv Tavshilin,' a special prayer for the preparation of food on occasions when the Sabbath follows a holiday (Yom Tov). In such cases, a special Takanat Halacha had to be established, originating in the Mishnah, so that a fire could be lit on a holiday, something not otherwise allowed.

Not found in the Jerusalem National Library. Listed by Otzar Haggadot, 444 according to a private collection.
