VERY RARE HORS COMMERCE LIMITED EDITION COPY with velvet Solander (clamshell) case. Trilingual Hebrew, English & French edition of the Torah illustrated by the eminent Jewish artist Abel Pann (born Abba Pfeffermann) (1883-1963), renowned for his paintings and lithographs on Biblical themes. Pann spent most of his adult life in Jerusalem and was a teacher at the Bezalel Academy from 1920 to 1924. In 1924 he resigned from his teaching position to devote himself full-time to lithography, writing that he was about to embark on his life`s work: the painting and drawing of scenes from the Hebrew Bible. Pann began work on a series of lithographs intended to be published in an enormous illustrated Bible, and although that series was never completed, he is widely admired for the series of pastels inspired by Bible stories that he began in the 1940s. The Hebrew text is set in the Vilna font; the English translation is that of The Jewish Family Bible, which appeared in London in 1884; the French translation, prepared by the French Rabbinate, was first published in 1889. 340x335mm. 700 pages. Red leather hardcover with gilt lettering on front cover. Page edges gilded. Includes red velvet Solander case ("clamshell") with front window. Printed on 140GSM Rivoli rag paper, specially produced by Arjomari Paper Works in France for this publication. This is an unnumbered "Hors Commerce" copy originally gifted to one of the participants in creating the book. [CONDITION:] Front cover leather slightly chipped in two places. Otherwise, this unique, high-quality edition of the Abel Pann bible is in excellent condition.
