The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

Naomi Firsht re­ports ( JC, Jan 1) on “a 12th-cen­tury He­brew Bible printed in Bri­tain, which fetched $3.6 mil­lion’’.

There was no print­ing in Bri­tain be­fore the 15th cen­tury.

Pre­sum­ably this is a ref­er­ence to a man­u­script, and it would be in­ter­est­ing to know more about its prove­nance. Dr Anne Sum­mers Hon­orary Re­search Fel­low in History Birk­beck, Univer­sity of Lon­don
