The Rabbeinu Bachyei commentary on the Torah, by Rabbeinu Bachyei ben Asher ibn Halawa. [Pesaro: Gershom Soncino, 1517].

[272] leaves (originally: [274] leaves. Lacking the title page and last leaf). An additional leaf was bound at the end of the book (from the Pesaro 1507 edition of the Rabbeinu Bachyei commentary). The first leaf, within an illustrated border (originally leaf [2]), was bound back-to-front (to give it the appearance of a title page). 29 cm. High-quality paper. Good-fair condition. Stains, dampstains. Wear to the first leaves. Marginal tears to several leaves. Only the front cover remains, detached.
