Without the 36 leaves of Haftarot according to various rites, and [2] leaves of errata, which are found in a few copies. This copy does not contain the blank leaves 838 and 882, and the blank leaves which sometimes appear after leaves 441 and 705 in the first pagination, and after leaf 67 of the last pagination. 41.5 cm. Thick, light-colored, high-quality paper. Good condition. A few stains. Minor damage. Light-colored leather binding, with minor damage.
This is one of the prominent Bible editions. Its significance is owing in part to the facts that it contains the complete long Masorah and short Masorah, and that the text of the Masorah was corrected from copiers' mistakes. It is one of the most important editions for researching the Masorah.
