Description & Technical information
One of the most accurate and earliest complete copies of Rabbi Samson ben Isaac of Chinon’s Sefer keritut on Talmudic methodology and hermeneutics, this was copied by a known scribe from Crete in Byzantine scripts. With New York, Jewish Theological Seminary, MS R933, this manuscript was used as the base text for the semi-critical edition published in Jerusalem in 1965. This text survives in about twenty-five manuscripts (over half of these incomplete), and only about five dating from the fourteenth century. All but three known copies are in institutional collections.
