About This Item

These books have a wealth of information bearing on genealogy and family, economic and social history, Jewish Law and the status of women. Jewish marriage contracts (Ketuba or Ketubbah) show the artistic taste of the lands in which Jews have resided. The Ketuba expresses the joy and jubilation of the marriage. The Ketubbah is a document recording the financial obligations which the husband undertakes toward his wife in respect of, and consequent to, their marriage, obligations which in principle are imposed on him by law. Most Jewish communities have followed the custom of decorating the Ketubbah. Includes marriage contracts from countries in the diaspora as disparate as India and Italy.

Two books inserted into slipcase. Each book has 116 pages with 16 black and white photographic illustrations of contracts, accompanying text on the opposite page plus 18 tipped-in color plates. Decorative endpapers. Text in Hebrew and English. Clean unmarked unread hardcover with light shelf wear to the dust jacket.
