Description Information
   Two volumes. [7], 3-158: 3-158; [7], 3-189:3-189; [7] pp., 225:139 mm., wide margins, crisp marbled edges, usual age staining. A very good set bound in contemporary green morocco, stamped in blind, rubbed.
   Rare and beautiful edition of the Bible, with translation of the text into Ladino. While Ladino works were frequently printed in Salonika and Constantinople it was seldom printed in Vienna. The edition consists of the text accompanied by the Ladino translation in Rashi letters on the facing page. The translation is by R. Abraham ben Isaac Assa (first ed., Constantinople, 1739–45), which became the most popular text among the Sephardi communities of the East.
