Flanking the title, in coloured cartouches, in large square script in dark brown ink, from top right to top left: משכיל לפ"ק :שנת בן The year 5452/1692. Below the left cartouche: 'וגם ב"ך יאמינו וגו: And believe thee [for ever] (Exodus, 19:9). At the end of the sheet: לזכות הרבים יגעתי. וטעם טוב טעמתי. לזכרון שמי חתמתי. נאם נתן נטע חזן וקס"ת סופר ארבעה ארצות פולין בן החסיד האלוף כהר"ר משה נפתלי הירש זצ"ל ממשפחת הרמה האמירשלאק חונה בק"ק ניקלשפורג: The scroll was composed by Natan Neta the official Cantor and designated secretary (Qesset Sofer) of the Council of Four Lands of Poland, son of the late R. Moshe Naftali Hirsch of the Rema Hammerschlag family in Nikolsburg (Mikulov). The family name "the Rema" refers most probably to Moshe Isserles (1520 Krakow, Poland - 1572), who is known as הרמ"א, and not to the 13th-century Spanish Talmudist "the Ramah" (הרמ"ה).
31 Scribal Notes
Inscribed at the end of the upper right circle כדאית'(א) בכתבי הארי ז"ל (as in the writings of the late ha-Ari).
This is mentioned again in the second large circle in the centre entitled איתן (Firm).
In the text סוד טעמי המקרא (The Secret of the Torah Neums), the scribe mentions that he found this iscription in the writings of Menahem Ziyoni Zefoni z"ztl (מצאתי בכתבי האשל הגדול מוהרר מנחם ציוני צפוני זצ"ל).

Until 2008 the scroll was kept in a wooden cylinder (length: 80.3cm; with handles: 99.7cm; diameter: 5.2cm), with wooden covers on either end. The cylinder is carved with a crenellated motif round the top, middle and bottom, and is similar to the wooden cylinder which held the scroll Cod.hebr. 450.

On the cylinder is an oval sticker inscribed in Latin: Tabula linguae/ hebraicae/ f.

Next to it is a small label marked: U 547. On the top cover is a sticker with the letter: f in black ink and another on the side: Cod.Hebr. 451.

From 2009, the scroll and its wooden cover have been kept in a drum–like cardboard box.

10.11.2009: According to Mrs. Christl Beinhofer from the Institut für Buchrestaurierung inMunichwho checked the wooden cylinders for this scroll and for BSB Cod.hebr. 450, the wood came from West Africa (SierraLeon,LiberiaorCameroon).It is balsa wood, type Kondroti (Rodoghnaphalon brevicusspe, Bombaceae). It is light, does not affect other materials and is immune to vermin. 

36 Decoration Program

The text is written in three columns within rectangles and coloured circles. The central column includes 10 roundels arranged in a hexagon similar to the kabbalistic Ilan Sephiroth, with four additional smaller roundels in the spandrels. This central layout is surrounded by a wide strip of text and flanked by two columns of five roundels. Five smaller roundels are arranged horizontally at the end of the scroll. All roundels are inscribed and are surrounded by small floral motifs. The colours are brown ink, red, yellow ochre and some greyish-blue washes.

36 Summary and Remarks

See BSB Cod.hebr. 450 (CJA Documentation).

39 History/Provenance
On the verso of the sheet is the stamp of the library: BAYERISCHE STAATSBIBLIOTHEK MÜNCHEN.
Next to it is glued a small piece of paper inscribed by pen: Hebr. 451.
This scroll, together with Cod.hebr.450 (see CJA Documentation), was part of the Mannheim Court library, as they contain the old signature U 547f., and the inscription Tabula cabalistica, the typical collection number and inscriptions of the Mannheim library. Both scrolls were transferred to Munich in 1804, after the electorates of the Platinate and Bavaria had been united by Karl Theodor in 1777.
