PROPERTY FROM THE ESTATE OF SHLOMO MOUSSAIEFF
Sefer nahal kedumim was first published in 1795-1797 in Torah or, a five-volume edition of the Hebrew Pentateuch, at Livorno, to which Hida had arrived seven years earlier and where he would live out the rest of his life. Like many of Hida’s other works, Sefer nahal kedumim was highly popular in the East, especially in Yemen, where some resorted to copying the book by hand because the editio princeps and subsequent editions had sold out. The present manuscript is one example of this phenomenon, and a note on f. 169v dated 10 Marheshvan 710 (November 2, 1949) attests that the book was brought along by its owner when he immigrated to Israel.
