Description:

The First Trade Edition of Arthur Szyk's "Haggadah"[SZYK, Arthur, illustrator]. The Haggadah. Executed by Arthur Szyk. Edited by Cecil Roth. Jerusalem [and] Tel-Aviv: Published by "Massadah" and "Magen," 1956.First trade edition (first published in 1939 in a deluxe limited edition on vellum of 250 copies). Quarto (10 15/16 x 9 inches; 278 x 229 mm.). Printed in black, sanguine, purple, blue, red, and green inks on [56] double-folded leaves. Fourteen full-page and numerous vignettes and border decorations printed in color. Text in English and Hebrew on facing pages (the illustrations are on the Hebrew pages). "The illustrations contained herein are reproductions of originals of Arthur Szyk of New-Canaan, Connecticut, U.S.A. Engraved by The Sun Engraving Co., England" (verso of title-page).Publisher's blue velvet over boards. Covers pictorially stamped in gilt with design in gilt of a Kiddush cup. Spine decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt. Pictorial pastedowns as in the original vellum edition. A fine copy. Housed in the publisher's quarter black imitation morocco over blue cloth clamshell case lined with blue velvet, with spine lettered and stamped in gilt, and with front cover stamped in gilt with the design of a Kiddush cup."During many of his years of travel, Szyk had been working on a large project of illumination, The Haggadah. The work took on a special meaning in light of the then growing anti-Semitism in Europe. Passover is a festival of freedom, and The Haggadah tells the story of Jewish liberation from slavery in Egypt. In order to heighten the topical message and relate the historical events to contemporary ones, Szyk emblazoned the Egyptians with the Nazi swastika. However, fearing reprisals, publishers on the continent would not touch the book as long as it included this symbol?Szyk removed the swastika, believing that the underlying message of the book was still clear and it was more important to see the project through to publication. A deluxe volume in a limited edition of 250 copies was published in 1940 by the Beaconsfield Press in London. Bound in gold-stamped leather, with end pages printed on silk, the full color illuminations are printed on double-leaf parchment and an English translation is matched to the Hebrew text. While the pages of English are decorated with small, intricate, sepia-toned emblems, the emphasis in on the illuminated Hebrew pages and the brilliant colors and striking combinations which are jewel-like in affect. One contemporary reviewer ['The Haggadah-A Sumptuous Illustrated Edition,' The Times Literary Supplement, 22 February 1941, p. 9] called it 'worthy to be placed among the most beautiful of books that the hand of man has produced'. The first copy of the printing was presented to George VI, King of England, to whom the book is dedicated" (Irvin Ungar, Justice Illuminated: The Art of Arthur Szyk (1999), pp. 80-81)."Most descriptions of this book list the date of publication as 1939, however, Cecil Roth's note in Studies in Bibliography and Booklore, Spring 1969, regards the year of publication as 1940?The first trade edition, printed on paper, appeared in 1956 published by Massadah and Magen, Jerusalem and Tel Aviv" (p. 93).
