<p style='text-align: justify;'>Incomplete, small-sized prayer book (mahzor) apparently of the rite of Corfu, containing prayer texts and liturgical poems for the seven days of Sukkot in Hebrew with extensive Hebrew liturgical instructions. Originally the mahzor must also have contained prayers and liturgical poems for (at least) Passover and Shavuot in view of the references to the other two pilgrim festivals in the text (see e.g <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(5);return false;'>1a</a>, <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(9);return false;'>3a</a>, <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(21);return false;'>9a</a>). Most of the text is vocalised. The tentative link with Corfu can be made due to the inclusion of a poem by Abraham ben Gabriel Zechariah of Corfu on folio <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(71);return false;'>34a</a> and the mention of 'Korfu' on the front paste-down by a modern hand.
