Leir. Sixth volume in the "Henry J. Leir Library of Sephardica: Text and Studies" series. The final version of "Sefer ha-Indiah ha-Hadasah we-Sefer Qortes" which is a Hebrew translation by Yosef Ha-Kohen of López de Gómara's work chronicling the conquest of the New World by the Spanish.

Includes four facsimile pages of Ha-Kohen's manuscript, which he finished the year that de Gómara died. Introduction in English; text in Hebrew. Fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 27129

Item Description: Labyrinthos, Lancaster, CA, 2007. Softcover. Book Condition: vg. First edition. 8vo. XXXIX, 256 pp. Original printed wraps. Photographic frontispiece of Henry J. Leir. Tenth volume in the "Henry J. Leir Library of Sephardica: Text and Studies" series. Epic poem by Antonio Enriques Gómez based on the biblical story of Samson, as noted in Lazar's introduction. "In his prologue to "Samson Nazareno," Gómez clearly insinuates why at this time in his Converso situation he chooses a biblical episode in which Samson represents his own repressed and enchained psyche in the shadow of the Spanish Inquisition and the treachery of his beloved Dalila, i.e., Spain." Illustrated with b/w reproductions of the title-page and all plates from the original 1656 edition. Introduction in English with some Spanish; text in Spanish. In fine condition. Antonio Enríquez Gómez (c. 1601 - c. 1661), Spanish dramatist, poet and novelist of Portuguese-Jewish origin, known in the early part of his career as Enríque Enríquez de Paz. As an army captain, he was suspected of heresy, fled to France about 1636, assumed the name of Antonio Enríquez Gómez, and became majordomo to Louis XIII, to whom he dedicated Luis dado de Dios 4 Anna (Paris, 1645). Some twelve years later he moved to Amsterdam, avowed his conversion to Judaism, and was burned in effigy in Seville on April 14, 1660. Bookseller Inventory # 26648

Item Description: Labyrinthos, Lancaster, Ca, 2009. Softcover. Book Condition: vg. Second printing. 8vo. XVI, 967 pp. Original illustrated wraps. Second volume in the "Henry J. Leir Library of Sephardica: Text and Studies" series. The first comprehensive reader of Ladino literature, covering a wide range of texts from the 15th to the early decades of the 20th century, most of them originally written or printed in Ladino using Hebrew typeface. The editor's aim is to open a window on the cultural heritage, which the Iberian Jewish exiles carried with them to Italy and the Ottoman Empire. The Ladino Reader presents a broad spectrum of poetic and prose writings, some of which were written before the expulsion. Most of the Ladino texts in Hebrew characters face transliterated versions; a few are present only in Hebrew typeface or in romanized transliteration. As traditional Ladino texts, particularly those dealing with religious and ethical matters contain a great number of Hebrew and Aramaic words or expressions, a succinct glossary is provided; the same for Turkish words found in later Ladino texts. Text in romanized and Hebrew-font Ladino and English. Wraps and interior in fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 26668

Item Description: Labyrinthos, Lancaster, CA, 1998. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. Limited first edition. 1/300. 4to. XXXVIII, 562 pp. on acid-free paper. Original red smyth-sewn clothbound with silver illustration on front cover and silver lettering on spine. Twelfth volume in the "Sephardic Classical Library" series. The Sefer Ha-Yashar was first printed in Naples in 1522 and has often been reprinted thereafter. It is a Hebrew midrashic work popularly known as The Book of Jasher and it derives its name from the Sefer haYashar mentioned in the biblical books of Joshua and 2nd Samuel. The book covers biblical history from the creation of Adam and Eve to a summary of the initial Israelite conquest of Canaan (as told in the book of Judges). It contains references that correspond to biblical texts, including the reference to the sun and moon in Joshua and the reference to teaching the Sons of Judah to fight with the bow in 2nd Samuel. Using linguistic analysis, modern scholars have dated the work to the late medieval period. In addition to the Midrash and the Talmud, the author of the Sefer Ha-Yashar drew from Josippon and other medieval compilations. This critical edition is based on the oldest Ladino Sefer Ha-Yashar manuscript, which dates to the latter part of the 17th century. Includes a selected bibliography and a glossary. Introduction, Notes and Commentaries in English; text in romanized Ladino, facing Ladino in Hebrew characters. Binding and interior in fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 26555

Original green smyth-sewn clothbound with silver illustration on front cover and silver lettering on spine. Fourth volume in the "Sephardic Classical Library" series. Lazar's edition of Kuzari is based on the only surviving Ladino translation, a 15th-century manuscript preserved at the Biblioteca Nacional in Madrid. A philosophic defense of Judaism in the form of a fictional dialog between the King of the Kuzars and a Jewish sage, during which a philosopher, a Christian and a Muslim are consulted about religious truth and the nature of faith and monotheism, resulting in the King's conversion to Judaism. The Ladino version edited here emerged a generation before the Inquisition, at an extremely troubled time in the life of Iberian Jews, providing them with a message of hope and consolation. Contains a selected bibliography. Preface and Introduction in English; text in romanized Ladino. Book in fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 38940

Item Description: Labyrinthos, Culver City, CA, 1989. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. Limited Edition. 1/300. XXVIII, 515 pp. on acid-free paper. Original silver-stamped red smyth-sewn clothbound with silver illustration on front board and silver lettering on spine. Third volume in the "Sephardic Classical Library" series. Two translations of a popular post-biblical book of epic and romance narrative, known as Sefer ha-Yasar [The Upright Book, The Upright Record, or Book of the Upright (Righteous)], and sometimes named after its opening line Sefer Toledot Adam [Book of the Generations of Adam]. The origin and date of composition are still a matter of debate. Long considered one of the lost biblical books mentioned in Joshua (10:13) and II Samuel (1:18), it is, in fact, similar to other pseudo-historical narratives from the Middle Ages. The Sefer ha-Yasar mixes select chapters from the biblical narrative (Genesis to beginning of Judges) with midrashic and legendary episodes borrowed from various sources, focusing on the lives and tribulations of major figures in the Pentateuch (Adam, Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Ismael, Jacob, Esau, Joseph, Moses, Joshua) along with nations and protagonists related to them through historical or legendary links. The English translation is derived from the 1840 Mordecai Manuel Noah edition and is a close literal rendering of the original Hebrew text, whereas the Ladino translation may be characterized as a creative stylized adaptation, often condensing or amplifying dramatic passages, and even rendering two chapters in rhymed stanzas. Preface and Introduction in English; text in romanized Ladino facing English version. Scarce work in fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 38942

Item Description: Labyrinthos, Culver City, CA, 1992. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. Limited Edition. 4to. XXX, [10], 725pp. on acid-free paper. Original smyth-sewn cloth with decorations in silver on front board and spine. From the Sephardic Classical Library series. Printed in 1553, the Ferrara Bible was the first Spanish translation of the Hebrew Bible (the Tanach) for use by Sephardi Jews. It was funded by the typographer Yom-Tob ben Levi Athias (also known by his converso name, Jerónimo de Vargas), translated by Abraham ben Salomon Usque (the Portuguese Jew whose converso name was Duarte Pinhel), and dedicated in one printing to Ercole II d'Este, Duke of Ferrara and in another to Doña Gracia Nasi. Unlike the Ladino Pentateuch, in which the Ladino is printed in Hebrew script, the Ladino Bible of Ferrara offered for the first time the complete Bible (Tanach) in romanized Ladino, modernized in language and style for Spanish and Portuguese Jews who, in the sixteenth century, left the Iberian Peninsula and returned to an openly Jewish practice in Italy and Holland. The Ferrara Bible was destined to become the most reprinted Jewish Bible (with slight variations) in the Netherlands, and the model for the first classical Spanish translation of the Scriptures (the "Santa Biblia" authored by Casiodoro de Reina in 1569, revised by Cipriano de Valera in 1602). Our critical edition includes an 8-page facsimile section from the original 1553 edition and contains a selected bibliography. Preface, Introduction, Notes and Commentaries in English; text in romanized Ladino. Near fine to fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 39331

Item Description: Labyrinthos, Culver City, CA, 1993. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. Limited Edition. 1/300. 4to. XX, 283pp. on acid-free paper. Original black smyth-sewn clothbound with silver illustration on front cover and silver lettering on spine. Ninth volume in the "Sephardic Classical Library" series. The Manuscript 2015 of the University Library of Salamanca, "Suma de casos de consciencia" (or "Sefer Tesubah") published here for the first time, represents one of the very rare documents in Ladino which have survived from the Sephardic heritage preceding the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492. The various texts it contains, most probably translated into Ladino at the end of the 14th or early in the 15th century, are preserved in a manuscript, which is without any doubt a copy from an older original now lost. Being a compendium of a variety of biblical, mishnaic, midrashic, and medieval rabbinical writings, adapted into Judeo-Spanish during a critical period in the history of Spanish Jewry, its aim was to present in the familiar vernacular of Castillian Jews a condensed version of religious and ethical texts otherwise not accessible to them. Stressing the idea of repentance and redemption, both individual and collective, these texts meant to revive the spirits of a community in turmoil after the devastating attacks on the juderias in 1391 and the two-year long Disputation of Tortosa [1413-1414], which were followed by mass conversions. The Salamanca manuscript offers the oldest and only medieval Ladino adaptations of "Exempla on the Ten Commandments," "The Sayings of the Fathers," and of excerpts from Yacob ben Asher's "Book of the Four Rows." The Scroll of Esther text, is independent of those found in the Jewish biblias romanceadas. The Ladino Exempla on the Ten Commandments reproduces many texts found in medieval midrashic collections and contains a number of texts not found elsewhere. List of Hebrew words at rear. Preface, Introduction, Bibliography, Appendix, Notes and Commentaries in English, Text in romanized Ladino. Binding and interior in fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 40450

Item Description: Labyrinthos, Lancaster, Ca, 1995. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. Limited edition. 1/300. 4to. XXXII, [4], 266 pp. on acid-free paper. Original teal smyth-sewn clothbound with silver illustration on front cover and silver lettering on spine. Tenth volume in the "Sephardic Classical Library" series. A critical edition of the oldest Ladino prayer book, predating the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492. It is also the only stand-alone woman's prayer book preserved from the Sephardic tradition. The text survived as a pocket-size manuscript in the holdings of the Bibliothèque Nationale of Paris and includes those portions of the traditional Hebrew prayer book most useful to a woman for her personal daily use at home and for the occasional use on the Sabbath and festival days in the synagogue. In many places, the translator has altered verbs in the plural to singular, as well as some masculine nouns to feminine, in order to adapt the text to the individual female worshipper. The manuscript is both a literal and spontaneous translation from the Hebrew, in a spoken and dialectal language that reflects a much older Spanish-Jewish oral tradition. Preface, Introduction, Bibliography, Notes and Commentaries in English; text in romanized Ladino facing Ladino in Hebrew characters. Binding and interior in fine condition.

Item Description: Labyrinthos, Culver City, CA, 1992. Hardcover. Book Condition: vg. Deluxe limited edition. 4to. XXX, [10], 725pp. on acid-free paper. Original smyth-sewn cloth with decorations in gold on front board and gilt lettering on spine. Ribbon marker. From the Sephardic Classical Library series. Printed in 1553, the Ferrara Bible was the first Spanish translation of the Hebrew Bible (the Tanach) for use by Sephardi Jews. It was funded by the typographer Yom-Tob ben Levi Athias (also known by his converso name, Jerónimo de Vargas), translated by Abraham ben Salomon Usque (the Portuguese Jew whose converso name was Duarte Pinhel), and dedicated in one printing to Ercole II d'Este, Duke of Ferrara and in another to Doña Gracia Nasi. Unlike the Ladino Pentateuch, in which the Ladino is printed in Hebrew script, the Ladino Bible of Ferrara offered for the first time the complete Bible (Tanach) in romanized Ladino, modernized in language and style for Spanish and Portuguese Jews who, in the sixteenth century, left the Iberian Peninsula and returned to an openly Jewish practice in Italy and Holland. The Ferrara Bible was destined to become the most reprinted Jewish Bible (with slight variations) in the Netherlands, and the model for the first classical Spanish translation of the Scriptures (the "Santa Biblia" authored by Casiodoro de Reina in 1569, revised by Cipriano de Valera in 1602). Our critical edition includes an 8-page facsimile section from the original 1553 edition and contains a selected bibliography. Preface, Introduction, Notes and Commentaries in English; text in romanized Ladino. Near fine to fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 26383
