    English Text:

    This richly illuminated Haggadah, with a Hebrew commentary, was copied and illustrated by Jacob ben Joseph of the Conegliano family whose sciurid crest (an august squirrel seated on a tallit) adorns the title page. Conegliano evidently used the Prague (1526), Mantua (1560), and Venice (1609) Haggadot as models for his delightful naïve folk-art renditions.
