Piza chumash
חומש עזרת הסופר
ע"י יהודה פיזא
The humash, published by Jehuda Piza, printed in Amsterdam by Gerard Johan Janson in 1769 by, is our "golden standard" with  respect nikud (punctuation), neginot, (cantillation) and division of parshiot (portions). It also includes  the haftarot. See also Hochmát Shelomóh on page 31.
Unfortunately there are very few sets of the Piza chumash around. 

The quality of this humash is well known. Rabbi Dr. Dov Bear  wrote in his preface of to תקון הסופר יהקורא Rodelheim 1886, 
החומש ההוא אשר ר"י פיזא יעדו לעזרת הסופר ואשר ר"וו היידנהיים שב להדפיסן... נקי הוא מפסולת הטעיות
"That humash, printed by rabbi Piza ... and reprinted by rabbi Heidenheim (1818), is clean from errors".
The layout of the book is very special. It is printed such that a sofeer can use it to write a sepher Tora with 42 lines per column, each column staring with the letter "wav". The printed book has 21 lines on each page, the right side of the page has the first 21 lines of the column, the facing left side has the 21 bottom lines.
Recently, the Ets Haim library provided us with a full scan, which can be downloaded. 

The first five books of the list can be ordered from the Amsterdam Portuguese Community.
