“The Trieste Hagadah is undoubtedly the most distinguished illutrated edition produced in Europe during the nineteenth century.” (Yerushalmi). Different in format and design from any Hagadah that preceded it, the Trieste Hagadah’s engraved illustrations, though inspired by the iconographic themes of the past, display a welcome freshness of design. Two issues were published simultaneously, one entirely in Hebrew and the other accompanied by an Italian translation. See Yerushalmi 102-105
