Amudei Gola, known as Sefer Mitzvot HaKatzar, by R. Yitzchak of Corbeil. [Constantinople: Samuel ibn Nachmias, ca. 1510]. First edition. Several glosses in Oriental script. Incomplete copy. [125] leaves, out of [146] leaves. Lacking [21] leaves: first 13 leaves and 8 leaves [37-44] in middle of book. Some leaves bound out of sequence (leaf [68] bound between leaves [140-141]). 19 cm. Fair condition. Stains. First five leaves detached, with open tear to first leaf (slightly affecting text), dampstains and worming. Rest of leaves professionally restored (tears, worming and margins repaired, and leaves bound together as one volume). Without binding. The Bibliography of the Hebrew Book lists the book as originally comprising [148] leaves, but Yaari in HaDefus HaIvri BeKushta (no. 36) records only [146] leaves. Other copies that we checked show the same (the NLI lists an incomplete copy with [140] leaves). No copy with [148] leaves is known to us.
