Provenance and Acquisition
Ownership notes on fol. 247v: there is an entry at end (obliterated) in which the year 5136 (1376) and the name of a witness Mosheh ha-Kohen ben Yeshua are legible; Yitshak חדידה. At the beginning of the MS note (by Kennicott?): "This manuscript was presented to me by the Rev. Mr. Isaac Netto, on the 20th of August, 1770. Mr. Netto bought it, when at Tetuan in Barbary, of a boy carrying it to a box in the synagogue, called נניזה, where all fragments of holy writings are preserved, lest they should chance to be put to improper uses. A short time after I employed Mr. Isaac Luria carefully to compare the said MS. with the best printed edition of the Hebrew Bible, which is supposed to be that printed at Amsterdam in the year 1667. The following are the variations he found; and the observations thereon have been approved by the Rev. Mr. Netto."
