<p style='text-align: justify;'>Illuminated Hebrew Bible in Sephardi script. According to the catalogue of Bezalel Narkiss, the Bible contains French- and Italian-style decorations and should most likely be dated to the last quarter of the fifteenth century. The Bible contains Masorah Magna and Parva and Tiberian vocalisation and cantillation signs. The Bible was once owned by a named Jew living in Kastoria in northern Greece. Later the Bible came into the possession of Johannes van der Hagen while he lived as a pastor in eighteenth-century Amsterdam. Having left a few notes in the codex, he mentions the date 26 April 1726.</p>
