This collection of haftaroth was copied in a very accomplished had. The initial words display detailed geometrical and organic shapes. The title page as well as the blessings are richly illuminated. Notes by Abraham of Steinfurt (1809) and Jeremiah ben David Sachs (1819) defend the use of parchment and colors, respectively.
