Description

This three-volume set, published in 1803, is a descriptive catalogue of the 1,377 Hebrew codices in the personal library of Giovanni Bernardo De Rossi (1742-1831), professor of oriental languages at the University of Parma. Each codex is numbered and its contents briefly described in Latin. The third volume also includes, as an appendix, summary descriptions of codices in other languages. De Rossi was an important collector of manuscripts and incunabula, and an authority on Hebrew typography and textual variants. The Hebrew manuscripts described in this catalogue were obtained as a result of his exhaustive researches into variant readings of the Old Testament, the results of which he published as Variae lectiones veteris testamenti (1784-8). He also produced groundbreaking studies of printed Hebrew texts, and a catalogue of Jewish anti-Christian polemics, Bibliotheca judaica antichristiana (also reissued in this series).
