Unlike the earlier Bombay (1846) Hagadah whose “illustrations were still closely linked to their Amsterdam prototypes, those in the Poona Hagadah have managed to drift into a sphere of their own. Even as they retain the basic pattern, they are now palpably Indian in tone and detail.” Yerushalmi 107-10
