Lot Number 1

Handwritten Parchment Leaf which Served as Binding – Part of a Manuscript of Piskei HaRosh with Hagahot Asheri – Germany, 15th Century

Handwritten parchment leaf, a section from Piskei HaRosh with Hagahot Asheri. [Germany, ca. end of 14th century or beginning of 15th century].
The leaf was cut for use in binding. Ashkenazic semi-cursive script, one gloss from Hagahot Asheri is in smaller writing, in a "window". This fragment contains Piskei HaRosh to Tractate Moed Katan, Chapter III (sections 80-85).
Three other leaves of this manuscript have survived and were bound at the end of a Rav Alfas manuscript (British Library, Margoliouth Catalogue no. 474) from 1386, containing passages of Tractates Moed Katan (Chapters I and III), Sukkah and Berachot. It seems that those leaves were also used in binding. See enclosed material.
[1] parchment leaf. Loss of text due to trimming to size of binding. Height: 19.5 cm. Width: 29.5 cm. Fair condition. Stains, some particularly dark. Several holes affecting text.
