Genève, Bibliothèque de Genève, Comites Latentes 146 : Midrash Tanhuma (Leviticus-Numbers-Deuteronomy)

One of the earliest manuscript exemplars of the version of the Tanhuma midrash text known among scholars as the "printed text" (first printed in Constantinople, 1520-22), as distinguished from the version first edited and printed by Solomon Buber in Vilnius, 1885. Copied probably somewhere in the Orient around the 14th century, the Hebrewscript is Oriental semi-cursive.
