Unknown Edition

During the same era, publisher Solomon Levi Maduro published a parallel work with the Laws in Spanish. The above printing is known and documented, however the present work with the laws in Hebrew is unknown and unlisted by any bibliographer and is not even documented in Otzar Hasefer HaIvri nor does it exist in the National Library in Jerusalem. Similarly, the Haggadah contained in this work is not documented in Otzar HaHaggados, which also documents Haggadahs printed in other books.

Amsterdam, 1774. Cashman Press at the behest of philanthropist Shlomo Levi Maduro. 52 leaves. Page size: 15 cm. Wine stains on Haggadah.
