“This, the only Spanish translation of the Haggadah to be printed in London, is also an example of the survival into the 19th century of the Spanish language among the Sephardic Jews of England” (Yerushalmi 85). The illustrations depict biblical scenes, and the maps detail the terrain of the Middle East printed by Levi Alexander, retaining their English captions. Printed in Hebrew with Spanish translation by Jacob Meldula of Amsterdam.
