<p style='text-align: justify;'>Recto, interlinear verso and margins on verso: commentary on passages from Genesis, including the days of the creation, the creation of men and the incident of the Tree of knowledge of good and evil. Verso: petition to the Fatimid amīr Tāj al-Dawla from Ṣāliḥ al-Ḵaybarī, a Baghdadi Jew. Ṣāliḥ petitions regarding a miserable situation into which he fell after a pledge made to Abū ʿAlī al-Ḥusayn b. Ḥasan. As a consequence, Ṣāliḥ was imprisoned for six months and is still in debt for 300 dinars. In order to repay his debt he was given the task of producing a tunic out of two pieces of Persian fabric, one yellow and one white. This task has not yet been completed, and Ṣāliḥ seems to be seeking the amīr’s understanding and support in this delay. Ca. 11th century.</p>
