Berlin: Ferdinand Ostertag, 1923. COMPLETE, ATTRACTIVE COPY YAARI 1952. First trade edition of the beautifully illustrated Steinhardt Haggadah, with 20 striking woodcuts by Jacob Steinhardt and calligraphic text by Franziska Baruch. This is one of the most truly distinguished Haggadahs published in modern times, a milestone in Hebrew book production (Yerushalmi 134). Steinhardts dramatic woodcuts show the strong influence of German Expressionism on his work. His experience in the German Army during World War I also had an impact on his work, perhaps most notably in the woodcut of the Four Sons, wherein the Wicked Son is portrayed as a soldier dressed in a Prussian uniform with a spiked helmet. Steinhardt also chose to illustrate the Haggadah passage concerning the perennial attempt to annihilate the Jews Steinhardt has focused upon a group of Jews, their faces showing that they are overcome with fear, in flight from some horror they have witnessed (Yerushalmi 135). Steinhardt closes the Haggadah with a series of ten woodcuts to illustrate the popular Passover song, Had gadya. The beautiful Hebrew characters in the text were drawn by the noted type designer Franziska Baruch and executed by Steinhardt in wood. Issued the same year as a signed limited edition of 250 copies.
