Description
   On Megillat Esther in Judeo-Arabic. The title refers to the great (al-kabir) miracle of Purim. At the bottom of the page is publication information in French, giving the name and address of the publisher, Makluf Nadjar, 26, Rue de France, 26 Sousse (Tunisie). The text is in a single column in unvocalized square Hebrew letters. From page 83, in Arabic in Hebrew letters, are the laws of Purim. The final page has a piyyut for the nes Purim in Hebrew, the first letter of each stanza spelling the name Abraham. At the bottom, again in French, is publisher information. The final pages are still attached at the top, having never been separated.

The volume has been attractively rebound.
