Nathan ben Samson of Meseritch was among the most prominent figures in the field of illuminated manuscripts in the 18th century. We are familiar with approximately two dozen manuscripts created by the Moravian artist, including about ten Haggadot. This Haggada, written mainly in vowelized Amsterdam letters, includes instructions in Hebrew-German as well as translations of the piyyutim "Adir Hu", "Ehad Mi Yode'a" and "Had Gadya" into this language.
