Fol. 467:
"מתן סתר תנו יותר לזה עופר\ נתן ברבי אליעזר הסופר מכתת\ אפר עד ימצא בו שכירותו\ וענתה בו אומנות אשר ממנו\ יקפוץ ידו פתאום יבא אידו\ והאיש אשר יתן לו בארץ\ החיים יהי חבלו: חזק\ ונתחזק (ה- מחוקה) נ'ב'א'ה' [נתן ברבי אליעזר הסופר] לא יוזק לא\ היום ולא לעלם עד שיעלה\ חמור בסולם (אשר יעקב אבינו חלם- תוספת ביד אחרת)."
"……. Strengthen and be strong, (h)* Nathan ben R. Eliezer the scribe (abbreviated) not be harmed today nor ever until a donkey climbs the ladder (that Jacob dreamed**)."
*The letter ה is canceled by the scribe. First he intended to write "the scribe" (הסופר), the word which is usually used in this formula of Ashkenazi scribes, but then instead of it he decided to write the abbreviation of his name.
** This allusion to the Jacob's dream (Genesis 28:12), sometimes appearing also in other Ashkenazi manuscripts, was added in semi-cursive script not by the scribe, but probably by one of the owners.
31 Scribal Notes
Corrections on the margins and between the columns were done mostly by the scribe himself (e.g. fol. 384).

Brown calf on wooden boards. The front and back covers and the spine are blind tooled. The front cover is tooled with six interlacing circles arranged in two rows and enclosing (from left to right) a griffin, a dear, two hybrids, an elephant bearing a castle and a lion. The back cover is divided into three rectangles enclosing (from left to right) a lioness running after a rabbit, a dog running after a dragon and acanthus scroll. The spine is divided by five double cords. Between them it is tooled with two dragons and a tiger.

36 Decoration Program

I. Decorated Parashah signs: floral motifs, birds, dragons and animals (e.g. fols. 88, 113v, 119v).

II. The Massorah magna at the lower margins is written in geometrical and floral motifs such as: zigzags, lozenges, roundels, fleur-de-lis and a key (e.g. fol. 322).

III. Shaped text in geometrical forms (e.g. fol. 466v).

IV. Decorated catchwords surmounted by v-shaped strokes creating a triangle (e.g. fol. 360v).

 

36 Summary and Remarks

The manuscript was copied by the scribe Nathan ben Eliezer, as stated in the colophon, in Germany. The text and the choice and order of the Haftarot are standard for Ashkenazi liturgical Pentateuchs. Schwarz dated the manuscript to the 15th century, but it could just as easily be attributed to the 14th century since the manuscript does not show any specific characteristics of the time of its production.

The manuscript contains only the scribal decoration for the Parashah signs.

Corrections on the margins and between the columns were, mostly, done by the scribe himself. He proofread the text before he added the catchwords. For example on fol.384 afew words were added on the inner margins, completing the missing text before the first word of this page. The catchword on fol. 383v repeats the first word of the addition.

The massorah was written after the catchwords and the decoration were done. Its lines take into account the existence of both (e.g. fol. 8v).

Fol. 466v:

On the last leaf of the manuscript, before the colophon, the lines of the right column create an apex turned downwards. The lines of the left column are disposed as two triangles turned each other with their apexes. The scribe finishing the manuscript disposed the text in a way allowing for filling an empty space on the leaf.
