Featuring one of the world's finest private Judaica collections

This is a special Beaux Arts reprint edition available at a discounted price in limited quantities only.

Years of research and travel have allowed Jacobo Furman to amass the finest examples of traditional Judaica, selected because of their rarity, beauty, quality, and importance as objects of ritual.

This magnificent edition is presented in its own elegant slipcase with one of the masterpieces of the collection appearing on each face. Beautifully photographed, full-color reproductions, 26 of which are tip-ons, celebrate the importance and beauty of each object. The general text, as well as the individual writings on each piece, are printed on delicately-colored laid paper interleaved with illustrations. Comprehensive essays accompany each piece, with additional text on topics of life-cycle and holiday events. Extensive end-notes with supporting photographs make the book as useful to scholars as it is beautiful. Chapter introductions are written by Dr. Grace Cohen Grossman, curator at the Skirball Museum in Los Angeles, while the specific entries on each piece have been researched and written by Jacobo Furman.

There is no other art book on Judaica currently available that presents the works of a private collection in such an important and elegant format.
