    Notes and historical accounts paraphrasing the first part of Genesis.



    “Noticias y relaciones historicas, donde se relata lo susedico, desde que crio Dios el mundo, hasta muerte de muestro Maestro y Gran Propheto Mosseh Capitan General del Pueblo de Israel […] Todo sacado de los mejores authores, y ajuntado con mucho trabajo y tiempo y puesto en orden por Ishack Fundam, Amsterdam.” 1767.

    Notes and historical accounts [… from the time] that God created the world until the death of […] the great prophet Moses … which are – through much labour, time and zealrecorded by Ishack Fundam, Amsterdam. 

    Noticias y relaciones historicas contains the paraphrased first part of Genesis, and may well be a collection of records containing the teachings of Chief Rabbi Selomoh Salem (1718-1781), whose name is mentioned on p.IV of the manuscript. Unfortunately, that page is extremely difficult to decipher, due to leaching ink. From p.1 onwards the text is quite readable again, until p.249, when the script starts deteriorating again.


    Spanish and some Latin (pp.321-337) / Paper / 32,5 x 20,1 cm. / IV, 337 pp.
