A collection of 14 works. Includes a Passover Haggadah (final leaves, not included in the listing of the 14 works). The appearance of naked Greek mythological figures on the title page aroused a certain amount of controversy and were subsequently removed. Indeed, no less than four different title-pages were issued for this volume. This copy also contains the rare listing and blessing for the three magnates who contributed toward publishing the book. The HUC, Sulzberger and other copies do not contain this listing. See I. Rivkind Sepher Ashir Besha’arim (“A Book Rich in Title Pages”) in: Studies in Bibliography and Booklore, Vol. 1,no. 2 (1953) p. 95-100
