Description
   Reproduction of the Prague-Kohn Haggadah, with a scholarly supplement in German on the Prague Haggadah and its history.

The original Prague is noteworthy, in addition to its usual fame, for the definition of "Maror" (bitter herbs) as the wife! The haggadah instructs the leader of the seder to point to his wife when he recites the text associated with Maror.
