Hebrew Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This manuscript contains the Book of Riches (Sefer ha-Osher), the anthology of biblical exegesis compiled by Jacob ben Reuben, a Karaite of the eleventh / twelfth century. The work, which is incomplete at its beginning, is wrongly ascribed to Joseph ben Judah the Karaite on the <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(5);return false;'>title page</a> and in the note on folio <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(3);return false;'>ia</a>. The <a href='' onclick='store.loadPage(5);return false;'>title page</a>, written in a different hand and mentioning place and date of copying as Zolochev 1539, was probably added at a later date. One of the anonymous cataloguers of the manuscript read the place-name mentioned there (זולצעוו) as Gozlow (Eupatoria).</p>
