The RARE ZOHAR  LUBLIN

Sefer HaZohar. Lublin, 1623. Complete Copy.

The Sefer HaZohar printed in Lublin, 1623 is an exceedingly rare and valuable work with very few complete extant copies. Even the National Library in Jerusalem does not possess a complete copy!



The Lublin edition of the Zohar Hakadosh was the first edition of Zohar printed in Ashkenazic lands. It was meticulously edited and printed, page by page, based on the Cremona edition which was popularly studied in Poland. There are some minor changes, amendments and additions introduced into the text, based on the earlier Mantua edition.

The Lublin edition of Zohar was regarded as significantly improved over both the previous Cremona and Mantua editions, since it was the first properly-edited version.

Edited by Rabbi Nosson ben Rabbi Yitzchak Shapira, a cousin of the famous kabbalist Rabbi Nosson Shapira, author of the Megaleh Amukos, with lengthy preface at the beginning of the Sefer HaZohar describing his amendments and improvements to the text.
