Manuscript, emissary's ledger of donations collected in Hebron and during his visit to Libyan cities. [1920s]. The ledger contains many lists, including hundreds of names, accounts and other details.

Other titles: "That which was contributed to the Russian", "Donation from out of town", "The remaining funds", etc. Leaves [31]-[32] bear indistinct stamps (apparently, of a Hebron rabbi). Leaves [85]-[86] contain inscriptions from the writer's visit to Libya, recording donations he collected there: "…15th Av 1922… that which was collected in Tripoli… funds and pledges… from Benghazi… Tobruk… Darnah… Al Khums…". [98] leaves (including 15 blank leaves). 11 cm. Fair-good condition. Stains and wear. Original binding, damaged and worn.
