With illustrations and Yiddish commentary in Vaybertaytsh. This quarto edition of the Amsterdam Haggadah and Grace after Meals is one of the most beautiful of the series produced by Proophs. Its woodcuts are often reproduced to illustrate specific Jewish customs.
Vaybertaytsh (Yiddish: װײַבערטײַטש, 'women's taytsh') or mashket (Yiddish: מאַשקעט), is a semi-cursive script typeface for the Yiddish alphabet. From the 16th until the early 19th century, the mashket font distinguished Yiddish publications, whereas Hebrew square script were used for classical texts in Hebrew and Aramaic, and "Rashi" script for rabbinic commentaries and works in Ladino. Mashket was used for printing Yiddish in the Old Yiddish literature period, and later as the primary script used in texts for and by Jewish women, ranging from folktales to women's supplications and prayers, to didactic works.
