Exodus in Hebrew from a Large Italian Bible Codex
Folio from a Hebrew Bible in Codex Form, Book of Exodus. Presumably Italy, ca. 1400-1500: 225 mm x 150 mm. Double column, remains of 24 lines, a very large manuscripts at one time. Provenance: Sotheby’s 7 December 2004 lot 3. Condition: the one side is largely unreadable without the aid of a UV lamp. Since the fragment once formed the wrapper around a sixteenth-century edition of Baldus degli Ubaldi, Tractatus de iure prothomiseos, it has been folded and bears stains and losses as shown.
